It's my first time growing carrots and the leaves don't seem to have grown in the last fortnight.
I'm worried that there's something wrong but there're no obvious problems as the leaves are still green and there's no wilting.
The soil is mostly loose and sandy with no stones so the only potential issue there may be nutrients but I read that adding some would cause forking if I wasn't careful.
The plants are about 9cm apart from each other, which I'm told is enough (and I've read that transplanting them can cause some problems at this point anyway).
Is it possible that all the energy is going into the roots? Can I check for pests attacking the carrot itself without digging it up?
Edit: It has indeed been hot for quite a while here.
