why have my carrots and parsnips grown all curly and not straight down into the soil



Is the soil stony? They bend to avoid stones.

If I grew mine in sand they'd still do the same.

Are they grown from transplants, rather than seed sown in place? Is there large amounts of compost or manure in the soil?
