How To Grow Carrots –
Growing Carrots In The

By Kathee Mierzejewski
If you are wondering how to grow carrots
(Daucus carota), you should know they
grow best in cool temperatures like those
that occur in early spring and late fall. The
night temperature should be dropping to
about 55 F. (13 C.) and the daytime
temperatures should be averaging 75 F. (24
C.) for optimum growth. Carrots grow in
small gardens and even flower beds, and
can accept a little bit of shade as well.
Tips on How to Grow Carrots
When you grow carrots, soil surfaces
should be cleared of trash, rocks and large
pieces of bark. Finer pieces of plant material
can be mixed down into the soil for
enrichment.
Start out with soil that will help your carrots
grow. When you grow carrots, soil should
be a sandy, well-drained loam. Heavy soils
cause the carrots to mature slowly and the
roots will end up unattractive and rough.
Remember that when you grow
carrots, rocky soil leads to poor quality
roots.
Till or dig up the area where carrots will be
planted. Make sure the soil is tilled up to
soften and aerate the ground to make it
easier to grow carrots long and straight.
Fertilize the soil with one cup of 10-20-10
for every 10 feet of row you plant. You can
use a rake to mix the soil and fertilizer.
Planting Carrots
Plant your carrots in rows that are 1 to 2
feet apart is the best way how to grow
carrots. Seeds should be planted about a ½
inch deep and 1 to 2 inches apart.
When growing carrots in the garden, you’ll
wait for your carrot plants to appear. When
the plants are 4 inches high, thin the plants
to 2 inches apart. You may find that some
of the carrots are actually large enough to
eat. Thin the carrots regularly to 4 inches
apart.
When growing carrots in the garden, make
sure to plant, per person, five to ten feet of
row to have enough carrots for table use.
You will get about one pound of carrots in
a one foot row.
You want to keep your carrots free of
weeds when growing carrots in the
garden. This is never more so than when
they are small. The weeds will take nutrients
away from the carrots. This will cause poor
carrot development.
When Do Carrots Grow?
They grow continuously after you plant
them. They also don’t take too long to
mature. You can start the first crop in mid
spring after threat of frost has passed and
continue to plant new seeds every two
weeks for continuous harvest through the
fall.
How Do You Harvest Carrots?
Harvesting of the carrots can begin when
they are finger size. However, you can allow
them to stay in the soil until winter if you
mulch the garden well.
To check the size of your carrots, gently
remove some dirt from the top of the root
and check the size of the root. To harvest,
gently lift the carrot from the soil.

There is a lot of detail and knowledge
behind all of our designs and so thought I’d
share it with you in a new series of ‘How To’
blog posts. Up first – Sofas and Chairs!
A sofa is one of the most important pieces
of furniture in a room and can make or
break your ideal lounge! It needs to be
comfortable, fit the space, look fab and
overall be up to the challenges it’s going to
face – from children climbing over it to
relaxing and entertaining (with a glass of
red wine). They’re expensive and you
deserve it to be right.
We’ve supplied lots of sofas and chairs for
our interior design clients and each one has
been made to fit their style and space
exactly. One of the most common things
heard when talking to clients about
designing their living room is that they really
struggle with finding sofa and chairs they
like. It might be too big, the arms might be
wrong or it doesn’t come in the right
fabrics.
So I thought explain a bit more about sofa
and upholstery options together with
photos of each stage of the sofa making
process so you can see just what goes in to
making it just right.
Style and Size
These two go hand in hand when designing
the room, but rarely go together when you
are out in the shops. Some high street sofa
companies are able to change the length of
the sofa for you so that you can make it fit
the space exactly.
Or else using a specialist means you really
can make it exactly how you want it. When
supplying sofas, we take a particular style
and change as many dimensions as needed
to make it right – whether it’s the length to
fit the room, the depth if you want to sit
more upright or the height if you are a
particularly tall family!
We also change arm height to suit your
preferences, leg style to suit your décor,
stitching type to match the style and so on,
so getting the right look in the right size
really is easy.
The Frame and Filling
There’s tons of options out there sofa wise
for all different prices – and for very good
reason. In upholstery terms there is a vast
range of quality and materials that can go in
to making sofas and chairs, and this
influences the price dramatically.
It is so important that the frame is of good
quality to ensure durability. Hard wood
frames are literally the backbone of any
good sofa! They are strong, durable and
resilient. Test the weight of the sofa – if it’s
hard to pick up and quite heavy, it’s going
made from hard wood and it going to last.
These chair frames are in for laquering as
the exposed frame forms an integral part of
the design. 4 coats down, 4 to go!
Look at how many spring options there are
so that they are all just right for the sofa
size;
And this one shows the foam going on to
the frame to make it lovely and comfy:
The Cushions
Next is the filling. You’re unlikely to get a
choice on ready made sofas as the majority
use Polyfill – a filling made (surprisingly)
from Polyester that’s cost effective but
eventually will sink and need replacing.
When building your perfect sofa, we look at
3 recommended filling types to get
maximum comfort!
Foam and Fibre wrapped is the most
popular and the least maintenance. It keeps
it’s shape well and comes in different
densities. Feather and down fillings are
super soft and really comfortable, but the
downside to these is that they require
plumping every time someone sits on them.
There is also feather wrapped foam, which
is the best of both words – giving you a
lovely soft top but backed up by the fibre
core to keep it’s shape.
Fabric
Then it’s on to the fabric. There are literally
hundreds and thousands of fabric options
out there and when you make your own
sofa you can have exactly the one you like
and is right for your requirements.
Important to bear in mind here that price
isn’t necessarily an indicator of durability.
Upholstery fabrics are measured in ‘rubs’ so
the higher the ‘rub count’ the more durable
it is. The price of the fabric will depend on
the composition – so you could have a lovely
man made fabric with a high rub test for
around £25 per m vs a natural fabric with a
lower rub test at a much higher price. It’s all
going to depend on how you are going to
use the sofa, how long you want it to last
and the style you are going for. There are
also some great options now in washable
fabrics that help increase the life of a sofa in
busy spaces!
And so, put it together and what have you
got?
Well, quite simply, a stunning sofa you love
sitting on!
You can see some of the sofa and chairs
we’ve made from scratch in the following
projects;
These fantastic green chairs in Judy and
Duncan’s apartment were made to our
designs.
As were the super cosy sofas in Vicki and
Dave’s snug and the sumptuous velvet
upholstery in Ann and Trevor’s home.
Plus we worked with Felicity on simply
designing her and supplying new sofas and
chairs to work within her existing lounge
scheme – so she didn’t have to make any
changes to the rest of the room!
Any questions you might have about the
sofa making process, do feel free to get in
touch. Next time – making lampshades.

1. The human cell contains 75 MB of genetic information.
2. A sperm 37.5 MB.
3. In a milliliter, we have 100 million sperms.
4. On average, one ejaculation releases 2.25 ml in 5 seconds.
5. Using basic math we can compute the bandwidth of the human male penis as:

(37.5MB x 100M x 2.25)/5 = (37,500,000 bytes/sperm x 100,000,000 sperm/ml x 2.25 ml) / 5 seconds = 1,687,500,000,000,000 bytes/sec =

1,687.5 TerraBytes/sec.

Can your ISP beat that ?
