Why do my beetroot plants grow all foliage and no bottoms?

Usually, if you are getting all kinds of top growth and not much root growth, the soil or fertilizer is way high in its nitrogen content. Not enough food is available for the root system development. If you are using a high nitrogen fertilizer, I would cut back on its use and find a fertilizer with a more balanced N-P-K formulation, or one higher in phosphorus (bone meal is good).
