Growing beets

Beets in raised beds
Beets are another root crop (in addition to carrots) that are supposed to be 'easy' - but have been problematic for me in (even in greatly amended) clay soils.

My best beets have been in raised beds filled with commercial vegetable compost from a local mulch yard (in the mountains).  Check out this post from a couple of years ago.

Beets, garlic, bananas, cyclamen, and shitakes in a cloth bag
We enjoyed this bunch as part of tonight's dinner.  Yum.


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