What to do Next
If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all the debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 2cm (¾") apart. Young Carrots can always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.
Never grow carrots on ground that has recently had manure spread, as the roots will fork in search of goodness.
