You can throw them around every couple of weeks to ensure a continuous harvest of carrots.
While this method may not work for everyone, it's worth a try if you're tired of being meticulous about sowing your carrots.
As @meggrowsplants says, "I used to be so meticulous about how I sowed carrots in my garden and they never worked. And I just started saying, whatever, chaos gardening. And I get really good carrots now."
