Plant of the Month – Aug – Carrot

For the month of August we decided to make the Carrot as our favorite plant of the month. Why do you say the Carrot? Well the carrot is a root vegetable that is full of flavor and texture; can be grown in any climate; and are easy to grow.

Check out the below recipes to see the amazing Carrot recipes we have gathered, from Breakfast to Dessert to even a Cocktail!!

  • Zone: 3-10
  • Where: Full Sun
  • Planting: Plant directly into the ground as they do not like to be transplanted

    • Can be grown with other plants like radishes!
