ASK A MASTER GARDENER: Beating beet problems
Q: For the past two years, I’ve had a problem growing beets. When they reach 3 to 4 inches, I find something has either chewed or dug them up. The leaves are lying down, and there is no beet, although there couldn’t be much of one this early. What could be the problem, and what should I do to treat it?
