Q.Why Did Beets And Kohlorabi Not Produce Bulbs/
Started a raised bed on Aug 15th. Top soil was bought from a garden center. Seedlings started very well. Planted beets radish carrots kohlorabi lettuce and spinach. The best germination ever in a few days. Was picking lettuce and spinach until Thanksgiving with the use of a cover during cold spells. The beets and kohlorabis never produced any bulbs only gorgeous leaves. I harvested great carrots for Thanksgiving. Any reason they wouldn’t produce bulbs?
