last spring someone gave me a packet of carrot seeds. I planted some then, but summer arrived too quickly and they never grew to a decent size. This year I planted the rest and I have some lovely good sized carrots this time. They are so sweet.
As part of my selection from Gardeners Supply I ordered some veggy scrubbing gloves. They make short work of cleaning the carrots. No peeling needed.
Too bad they have taken them out of the catalogue because they do a great job. However, they are available from other sources.
