A few days ago, my 5 year old asked me if the carrots were ready to pick out of our garden. I am no gardener, so I had no idea - you can see if the tomatoes & the cucumbers & the green beans are ready, but how do you know with the carrots? So I let her pick a couple. Er, they weren't ready! But we took a little nibble anyway - they tasted very carroty!
Anyone know....how can you tell when carrots are ready to pick?
