Dare I count them? Carrot seedlings emerge

I know most people don't have a problem with growing carrots but I certainly do. This time, I tried sowing them on top of freshly tilled soil, then covering the seeds with a thick carpet of alfalfa. I had seedlings emerging in two weeks. Since I have bazillions of slugs lurking in every corner of my community garden plot, we'll see how many actually survive.

Family Apiaceae, Daucus carota
