Root Crops

Most root crops enjoy the cooler weather of spring and fall, with many of them developing a sweetness that is hard to achieve without a frost or two! Each of the crops in this collection can be direct sown. At Sow True Seed we like to sow our root crops a little thick and then thin the seedlings for a bonus microgreen crop and then a second later thinning to mature spacing will also yield some edible greens!

This collection includes: Beets, Carrots, Radish, Rutabaga and Turnips. Article: Fall Planting Know How: Growing Brassicas
