: Hi. This was my first year gardening. A lot of my carrots died off, the ones that live were sooo bland, literally with no taste. A friend told me it was time to harvest, maybe it was too early? They were grown in Miracle Grow potting soil in a very large container outside in full sun. I am in USDA zone 5. Any advice for next year?


Hi Tina,

Did you use a fertilizer? If so, fish emulsion would be a good one to use. It may also have something to do with the variety of carrot you planted. It appears that you are growing in just potting soil. I would also suggest you use a ratio of 40% compost to %60 potting soil.

Hope this helps,
Newt
