Do carrots keep growing after harvest?
Carrots grow continuously after you plant them. They also don't take too long to mature. You can start the first crop in mid-spring after threat of frost has passed and continue to plant new seeds every two weeks for continuous harvest through the fall.
How do you harvest carrots so it keeps growing?
Rather than pulling them out, snip the plants off at soil level to avoid harming nearby seedlings. Give your carrots consistent water as they grow, about 1 inch per week. Mulch around the plants to keep soil moist and weeds at bay.
How long do carrots take to regrow?
Because carrot seeds require 14 to 21 days to sprout, many gardeners mix a few radish seeds, which sprout quickly, with carrot seeds to mark the row. Cover the seeds lightly (Fig. 3). Carrots grow best in cool temperatures of early spring and late fall.
