Gardening Tip of the Week : Root crops

Root crops do better planted in blocks, in raised beds. The soil is looser, so they can grow unimpeded. Raised beds warm up quicker, so you can get them in the ground during the cool weather they love. And you won’t be risk walking on them. A bonus is you don’t have to bend so far to thin them out.
