    Yes just make sure the container is large enough.

    You will probably not have enough room. If you mean planter box, it will be fine, but you won't have enough room in a pot.

    The tomato plant roots would probably compete for the same areas that the carrots would grow, unless you plant maybe the real short variety.

    Tomato and carrots are often planted as companion plants. The catch is how big is the planter? I am experimenting with different containers this year. Last year the maters were in grow bags 7gallon size. No room for carrots.

      It is a large container. I jsut didn't want the tomatoes to shadow out the carrots.

    I would think you could get 1 batch of new carrots before the tomato canopy get too big.

    the carrots should be ready and eatable before the tomato is mature- use the "baby" type carrots they generally mature the earliest.
