Welcome to our video series Homegrown, Homemade. We’ve teamed up with Fine Gardening to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate.
In this series with Fine Gardening‘s Danielle Sherry, Danielle shows me how to grow and harvest carrots. In my garden, I’ve been plagued with short, stumpy, gnarly specimens. Danielle shows me how to grow sweet, crunchy, more uniform carrots, the kind I’d actually like to cook with. Then, we move into the kitchen, where I share some favorite recipes and show Danielle how to make the most of homegrown carrots.
Episode Three: How to Harvest Carrots
How do you know for sure when it’s time to harvest carrots? Do you just pull and pray? Luckily, there’s more to it than that. Danielle shares the telltale signs and an old farmers trick for pulling carrots.
