I grew these in a raised bed with weed block fabric tucked right up to the row, and watered them regularly. Using the weed block fabric and sowing the seeds about 1 inch apart helped. I covered the seeds with a thin strip of wood to help them germinate. I got good sized carrots in about 65 days. Good yield, looked great, tasted great. Harvested the last ones around labor day.
