[Market-farming] carrot germination

When I was in Missouri and sowing carrots in late July/early August, what 
seemed to work best was to give the beds a REALLY heavy soaking at planting 
time -- several hours, either from sprinklers or drip.  Then, for the next 5 
days/until germination, running drip on the carrot beds in late afternoon 
for 30-60 minutes.  (Very important to only use drip lines in good shape for 
this -- any gaps in coverage meant for no germination.)
