Fresh Carrots in Our Kitchen


Petite Sweet Little Finger Carrots are another favorite root vegetable grown here at the Veggie-Bed. These carrots were sown in bunches of six in this 6 ft row; however, they grow well in 12-inch containers. With 60 days to harvest, we will start having fresh carrots in our kitchen by June.

An extra sweet, baby-type carrot the Petite Sweet Little Finger Carrot was developed for canning and pickling in France. With smooth skin and a small core, they are also great for snacks.
