What you see are the results from our grand garden experiment this past summer, how much do you really need to thin your carrot crop. Skimp on thinning equals, lots and lots of little carrots. Still edible, but take a lot of work to prep them. Once in awhile we get a really nice big carrot, but this year lots of little ones. Some of these made it into purees, soups and roasts, but others just back in the compost.

So if you like homegrown baby carrots, by all means skip thinning your seeds, otherwise give your carrots a little room to grow!
