  1. will they keep getting bigger over time?

  2. The reason that I asked is because I have a friend that did this with her potatoes. She went back for them and the critters had eaten half of the hill. I told her she must have done something wrong because people have been doing this for years with great success. Thanks Much.

  3. Good to know. Thank you for this great winter gardening tip.

    Yes, we use this technique for all root vegatables

    Not one bit, in fact the leaves on top really helps prevent that even further.

    The leaves are simply piled on top of the whole carrot patch and the entire plant is covered, foliage and all

  7. I am curious if the carrots were planted in the early fall and then covered to overwinter or if these were carrots planted in the spring that you left in the ground for winter harvest?

  8. That is really cool. I love carrots and so do my grandkids. I will have to do this next year.

  9. Do you just pile leaves (mulch) over the entire carrot plant? Do you need to keep the foliage exposed or just pile right over them? I have a patch of carrots I planted in August. they are very small still (in December), should I just leave them in the ground till they get full size?

  10. So you don’t have any trouble with the animals digging up those carrots?

  11. Would that mounding technique work with other root vegetables such as radish, parsnips, etc… as well? I’m also wondering if one could plant carrot seeds where the ground has not yet frozen, mound up the leaves or other mulch, and get a winter jump on the root vegetables for next summer?
