Carrot seed harvest

Carrot seed harvest
Posted by Linda Barth ( from SW Washington / on 2008-08-29 12:20:00

I have carrots from last year that have gone to flower (I am glad they did) but, how do I know when the seeds are ready to harvest? I have big flower heads that have turned grey and I have smaller flower heads that are still compact and white. I have picked both and find no seeds. I want to harvest these and replant them.
Any advise, pictures would be appreciated.
