Can I put the carrot seeds on the ground with a drip water?

Over watering them may rot them. Put a light hessian cloth or shade cloth over them until they germinate and establish themselves a bit.

Mike - glad I read this. I often wonder if I am overwatering carrots (and other things, including tomatoes-someone said you can't overwater tomatoes). This is my second attempt at carrots and yet another attempt at vegie growing. This time, I started off with seeds in trays and seed mix in the green house. (Next time I will sow less although seedlings might make a good surprise gift!) Amazing. And deeply moving to see seeds germinate. Now, some if thise things are planted out although as a result of my lack of gardening knowledge (re soil pH, feed -nitrogen,calcium etc and how much to water different plants and what to feed them or not feed them etc) I feel behind the eightball/it's pot luck. A wing and a prayer. A couple of carrots have become just visible but I am guessing that doesn't mean pick! I am about to plant out some baby carrots. Thanks. J.
