Only potatoes need hilling to make the crop. We generally use hillers as a way to cover over weeds that grow in the row. Shallow hilling can eliminate one or two hand hoeings in most vegetable crops. Now that I use herbicides I seldom hill anymore. But it is a good option to have on hand when weed get by you... Bob.

Are there vegetables that suffer from being hilled?  Lettuce obviously wouldn't do well, but I'm wondering about others.
