I love carrots! Thanks for this informative hub.

One bit of advice on this hub (hope you don't mind)... I see plenty of blank spaces between lines that should not be there. Consider fixing that so the hub looks more presentable and professional. Also consider adding a picture to this hub of the carrots.
