Pegged and plugged a carrot lately?
I did it for the first time....and it was awesome! They say you cant transplant carrots but i react to "they say you cants" with creative success every time. I found that when thinning carrots the "throw away" babies will in fact grow, but the damage and shock to the tiny plant usually hinders normal growth. I seeded plugs with up to two dozen seeds, grew for six weeks, separated, and took the largest ones and dropped them into holes pegged in the ground.
This way there will be no weeding, thinning, or worry from nematodes (tiny slugs) mowing down the newly planted carrots.
