Root crops (radish, beets, turnip) rising out of soil.
My root crops often rise out of the soil, leaving the "bulb" part wobbling about atop the tap root and flopping over. Needless to say, they don't develop well when that happens.
I wonder if this has something to do with sandy soil not anchoring the plants well.
I've tried hilling up, which is tedious and not totally effective. I'm now trying deeper planting of the seed. Early resulta seem to be so so.
Any suggestions about the cause and a cure?
