What a satisfying beet harvest we had! I forgot to take pictures of the cooked beet greens we had and the beautiful site of the roasted beets. It was interesting how the largest beets had white rings in them, and did not have as much flavor as the smaller ones. I think next year, I will harvest them when they are smaller. Also, I did not thin them as well as they needed. When there were two plants growing together, they both were stunted to the extent of not even being worth eating except for their greens. Moral of the planting? Give each plant their own space!
