truth or myth? you can’t transplant carrots

Root Vegetables

I heard you can’t transplant carrots because the roots end up crooked. I thought I’d just be very careful to dig a deep hole and straighten the root as I transplanted. Hmmm. No such luck. I had to learn the hard way. I threw out my second batch of seedlings without transplanting them. I will go back to direct sowing. I think carrots (and parsnips) are the only crop I don’t transplant.
