Amsterdam can be sown as early as February under protection, and for baby root production you can sow this variety as late as August. Make sure that you grow all your root vegetables in a soft, preferably sandy, deep dug soil. You can even add some sand to the soil in the autumn or spring, to make it easier for the roots to grow. Sow the maincrop carrot seeds between late March and mid June. About three weeks after the seeds germinate, the seedlings need thinning out, just remove some of them from the row, to make room for the roots grow into the desired size. Later on the rows might need an other thinning, and when the small carrots are a bite size you can start using them in your kitchen.
