Grow the Best Root Crops book cover

A-117; 32 pages; 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; Paperback.

Why have root crops survived for thousands of years? Because they produce large yields in limited space, and most are easy to grow. They are some of the first vegetables harvested in the spring and some of the last in the garden come winter. Many can be stored right in their beds under a thick mulch, to be harvested as needed all winter long. Their true versatility, however, is best experienced in the kitchen!

This bulletin will describe how to grow and use the best root crops — beets, carrots, celeriac, parsnips, spring and winter radishes, rooted parsley, salsify, scorzonera, turnips and rutabagas.
