Question of the Week – Snuggling

Posted by romeethredge on March 20, 2015

Last week I had a photo of some carrots that had recently been harvested that were twisted. Bob Youmans said that you know it’s been a very cold winter and the carrots grew that way because they were snuggling to try to keep warm.

I wrote our UGA Vegetable scientist, Dr. Tim Coolong about it and he said he can’t argue with that answer. He said, “I’ve seen this before in sweet potatoes, too. Usually I see it in a little heavier soil- typically not chemical/herbicide related just usually odd root growth due to growing conditions – it has been cold though…….”



What’s happening here? How are these seeds defying gravity, sideways on the plate?IMG_5966
