Onen Markeson/Master Gardener: Cold weather growing? Try beets and carrots
Beets and carrots are two cool weather loving, quick-growing plants that can be put into the ground shortly after the ground thaws. These two tasty and versatile vegetables can easily be grown and appreciated in our short growing season.
These two crops can be planted in your garden about three weeks before the last frost of the year, or when the ground can be easily worked. This can happen as early as late April (if we are very lucky) or early May.
