At the first of the new year I had open bed space and a packet of Atomic Red Carrots from Kitazawa Seeds.  So guess what — I thought I would give them a try.

ATOMIC RED CARROTS

When I looked at the expected growth characteristics I was a little early on the germination range and the height would be about 2 feet in total.  I use a whole package of seed and just mixed into my gravel – nothing special here.  The seeds are very – very – very tiny.  They did float at first and ended up on one end of the bed area.  Once germination was accomplished I just moved the seedlings around until I got the spacing I thought would work.  Having never worked with carrots before I had no idea what to expect.

Well as of this past weekend here is what I have:

Over 3 feet of growth now

Here are additional pictures to show how well these “ATOMIC REDS” are doing.
