I had a nice raised bed (3X6 feet) that I planted in carrots late last year.
They grew a little bit, and then winter came. They were about an inch long
when the frosts started, and have stayed that size all winter. Some of the
tops seem to have died; others still look green and healthy.
Now, it is warming up. I want to get some new carrots in as soon as
possible, but I don't know what to do with these old ones. Will carrots
grow after having been in the ground all winter? Are they like onions in
that, when the weather grows warmer, they'll get going again, or is this the
end of the line for them? Should I pull out all the little carrots and
plant fresh, or will these eventually grow into maturity? If I need to pull
them up, should I NOT plant carrots here again, even though the first crop
didn't make it to maturity?
I live in southwestern Utah, zone 7 or 8. Thanks in advance for any advice.
