This article (actually a chapter from a book) shows the root development of many vegetables, and gives info on nutritional needs. I found it very helpful to "see" what goes on under the soil.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I am one of those people that digs up a plant at the end of season to see what the roots did and how they looked so this was right up my alley.

That is a very informative link with more information than just the root systems. Thanks for sharing.

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
