How to Grow Carrots:

Step 1: Start with carrots that have leafy tops. Cut off the tops, leaving about two inches of greens.

Step 2: Cut off the top inch of the carrot, and plant it in potting soil or fine pebbles in a dish. Leave the greens above the surface. Keep the soil barely moist.

Step 3: If using pebbles, add fresh water every other day. When the carrots begin to sprout new leaves, plant in soil in a flower pot.
