Growing beets

I've been delighted to have robust-looking beets growing in my raised beds in the mountains.  I definitely haven't been successful growing beets before. 

They need neutral soil, a deep bed for the roots to develop, and plenty of moisture, not always easy to provide in the acidic soils of the Piedmont, where I've been growing most of our vegetables.

So, I'm happy to have harvested a few 'first' beets, two 'regular' and one golden.

They were delicious!

  1. Yummy! I'm growing beets for the first time. I'm not sure we get enough moisture for this crop...

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
