It Matters What Soil Vegetables Are Planted In

Today I discovered very visibly why it matters what soil vegetables are planted in.

This is a picture of my freshly picked carrots. They taste great and grew well, but because the soil had large compost pieces in it the carrots could not grow straight down. So every time the growing carrot encountered an obstacles it started to grow sideways and that's the reason why my carrots grew in spirals.

Now my plan for next year is to move this soil to another part of the garden and replace it with more root vegetable friendly soil.

I would love to hear from other gardener's about their experiences.
