Session Three Harvesting Card

Harvesting your Carrot plants

  • Carrots have orange roots which grow below the ground, it is this part of the vegetable which we eat. They can be long and slim or short and round

  • Above the ground you will see the green feathery carrot tops

  • We can pull these to get them out but sometimes they break off

  • To get your round carrots out of the ground it is best to put a small fork or trowel into the ground near to them and lift them up

  • Did you know that you can even eat the top green leafy part of the carrot although not many people do! ( It can be put in a salad)
