Winter carrots, harvested around January or February are a sweet treat in the Willamette Valley. If you plant seeds now, you can savor home grown carrots, too–perhaps ready in February or even March, depending on our winter conditions.
Sprinkle a general all purpose fertilizer on your soil at the time of planting to replenish it from the summer. Plant seeds about 1/4 inch deep. Germination takes much longer now than it does in the summer.
