The Carrot Project


An experiment in indoor gardening (or, what to do when cabin fever reaches, well, feverish proportions) Since growing lettuce in flower pots in the living room window has been such a great success, I decided to branch out into carrots. Alan got this big pot out of the snow for me a couple or weeks ago. It took an amazing length of time for it to thaw, even sitting on the kitchen register, but today I added a little sphagnum moss and planted rainbow carrots and one other variety, which escapes my mind at the moment. I have to set up a nice little toothpick minefield to keep the cat off it and then we shall see what we shall see.

Can carrots be grown indoors? Maybe....
