Today, I was cleaning out my shared alley bed and came across a few carrots from last year. They were all still tiny, despite having been in the ground for almost a year. I'm going to have to investigate what kind of soil carrots like. The soil is loose and rich, so I get big tops and small carrots. Maybe the soil has too much nitrogen. Does anyone out there know how I can amend the soil to get bigger carrots?

I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
