Baby carrots

Hi readers,

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 can you tell when carrots are ready to pick?


  1. You look at the "shoulders" of the carrot. If they seem substantial enough, the carrot probably is too.

  2. Thanks for the tip - I am clueless when it comes to gardening! :-)
