Carrot Experiment Update

Round one of my carrot seeding experiment definitely goes to Method A: Direct Seeding. 

It's a little hard to tell in the photo below, but the carrots on the right were seeded directly.  I had almost 100% germination rate, and did do some thinning.  The patch on the left, was Method B: Homemade Seed Mat.  As you can clearly see, a failure. 
I haven't given up on the seed mat experiment just yet.  I have re-made a new seed mat using a non-bleached napkin over the original newspaper.  We'll see how it goes!
