Here's a lot of iPhone photos of carrots. They are not chronological. We harvested carrots from, let's make a wild guess, late October through late February? I planted Nelson Hybrids and Merida Hybrids from Territorial, and harvested all of the former (65 days on the packet) before we went to Mexico. The latter (240 days! That's most of a year!) we finished eating long after the sequential freezes had done their tops in but before they had started much spring regrowth. They were all delicious, crunchy carrots the whole damn time. I am sorry, but goooo hybrids! I needed an easy success this summer-fall of 2013, and these puppies were it. Double dig, throw down some fancy comes-in-a-bag harvest supreme, seed, water, thin... win. Also the spinach that I am still harvesting. But that's for another day.
