Question: 380-3410
What is the best culture for root vegetables ? Harriet, Noank, CT

Mort's Answer:
A good deep trench that is filled with fertile sandy soil. Carrots require a foot or better in depth. Beets and potatoes are high feeders. Potatoes use a 10-10-10 fertilizer. Beets need high soil temperatures of at least 65 before planting.
