garden soil - Knowledgebase Question

I have amended my soil for many years including lasagna gardening and now have black seemingly rich soil. I cannot, however, grow any root veges. Not even a radish. This has always been the case no matter how good or bad the soil was. They grow tall and the root looks spindely like a regular root. Nothing grows under the soil. What's wrong?

If your soil is rich, root vegetables should grow well. I wonder if you are planting at the wrong time of the year? Root veggies develop best in the cooler months of the year. Try planting in early spring or in late summer for a fall harvest. Hope this helps!
