1/2" deep is too deep here and everywhere else I've ever raised them. I know just grow them in the garden but used to raise them in the field.
And carrot seed gets old quick?? Not in my experience. Have planted 5 year old seed and it came up just fine. It has a distinctive smell. As it gets a year or 2 old the smell gets stronger. Once you don't smell it anymore or as it gets weaker, then throw it out.
