: 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?
Add some limestone to the soil. make sure your fertilizer is low in nitrogen, too much nitrogen during a hot growing season can affect the flavor. lots of compost is good, and deep waterings. good luck
