Carrot Mountain Ranges:
A dozen years went into making carrot beds in deep mulch. They like well drained, organic rich, sandy soil. If the organic matter is not VERY decomposed you get some very kinky carrots.
Also is pic of favourite youngest son stomping leaves deep in the valleys of the three range carrot mountains. These leaves will completely decompose throughout the year and be mixed into the soil as i dig the carrots out through the summer, fall, winter, and early spring.
My long double row only needs one "valley" to be stuffed and compacted, then seeds can be sprinkled, covered, and watered easily.
Here i am digging my way under the kale trees.
