Iceberg lettuce will be evident when it is ready for harvest. The heads will be large - about 6-7 inches in diameter. Carrots are a little more difficult to judge. Sometimes you need to pull one or two to see how large they are. It usually takes 60-65 days for them to mature so start checking in about 2 months. Enjoy your garden!
