For this year, I decided to try Annie Granny's method of planting carrot seeds by making homemade seed mats. You can see the great tutorial of how she makes her seed mats here. This year we are growing Scarlet Nantes, Cosmic Purple, Parisienne, and Purple Haze. I am so excited about the purple variety that we are growing this year, I've never tried these before so it'll be a fun experiment. I got both of the Purples and Parisienne from a seed swap. I love seeds swaps because it gives you a chance to try a new variety without committing to a whole packet of seeds. I can't wait to see if these germinate soon!
