Flaming a Carrot Bed

Mary Alice

Carrots take a long time to germinate and can't take a heavy weed load.  Therefore, we prepare a carrot bed about 1 or 2 weeks ahead of planting and then flame the bed with a tiger torch. Here is a video of Marika flaming a carrot bed to reduce weed load.flaming 2

After flaming carrot beds we plant radishes in between the rows. The radishes will be up and harvested before the carrots get too big.
