Rooted By Roots
It may be a humble root vegetable, but Bugs Bunny’s favorite snack elevates to rock-star levels at the annual Holtville Carrot Festival. This California town proclaims itself the “Carrot Capital of the World” and celebrates Feb. 2-11 with cooking contests and a parade. Can’t make the fun? Get out and plant some of those beta-carotene beauties. They grow best when soil temperatures are between 45 and 85 degrees.
