Day 6

Our carrot sprouts are making their way.  
Soon these guys will be big enough to get planted in the bed.
Carrots are a great companion plant, especially with tomatoes.  If you have fall tomatoes, planting carrots nearby helps the tomato plant produce! (Intercropping)
Otherwise, carrots are typically planted in early spring, which makes them a perfect neighbor to the tomato, after the last frost.
Carrot roots are ready to pick in approximately 65 to 75 days, depending upon variety, so we'll see ours before the new year.
