Rooted By Roots

Farm & Ranch Living - - UNITED STATES OF AG -

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.
