How to Grow Atomic Red Carrots From Seed
# 1 | Prepare your soil 3-weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F.
# 2 | Because atomic red carrots grow long and slender they appreciate deeply worked, loose soil. Deeply worked soil will help your atomic red carrots reach their full length. Build up a raised mound in a row about 8" wide; sow your carrot seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4" very loose soil.
# 3 | Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the the area above the seeds to become hard - this may prevent the seeds from germinating. In cooler climates you can sow more seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop.
#4 | Seedlings should emerge in 10-17 days.
