Growing carrots in raised bed made from 6 inch high timber boxes, fresh soil and compost. Sowed half carrots and half parsnips. Parsnips turned out very well but lot of the carrots turned bad. See pictures.. only thing I can think of is there drainage as in put holes in the side of box because the ground underneath is quite porous. Any ideas welcome so I can avoid this again for next season, thanks
I think that’s carrot fly damage. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=485
You can protect your carrots with a fine mesh insect netting.
