Take a look how carrots are washed. You can do more than just boil a carrot. Things you may not have known about carrots.

This is a field of late carrots we sow them up the middle of the butts so they can be covered with the soil from the wheel tracks this will help protect them from any frost we may get this coming winter.

Soil before and after it as been worked.

These carrots are an early variety, but they were sown at the beginning of April. This is to late in the season for covering them with plastic. So they have been covered with a grow cloth cover. It is like a very thin linen. One sheet covers about 3 quarters of an acre.
