How to Harvest Root Vegetables – The Veg Gardeners’ Glossary
Alice Whitehead is back in her greenhouse for this installment of the new Veg Gardeners’ Glossary video series. In this series, Alice demystifies and explains many of the essential tasks for successful homegrown crops.
In this episode, Alice shows us how and when to harvest root vegetables. Timing is everything, if you pull your root vegetables out of the ground too soon they may be a little small, however, if you hang on too long they may become woody and tasteless. Alice gives us all handy tips on how to spot when your carrots, parsnips, celeriac and beetroot are ready to harvest and at their optimal tastiness.
Alice Whitehead is a third generation allotmenteer that likes to grow, eat and get muddy – then write about it! With two urban allotment plots, an award-winning school garden club and an enthusiastic nine year old son to help.
