Beets are beautiful

My mother-in-law gave me a newsletter from someone in Westport known as “Annabel the Plant Lady”. What a great newsletter. It has a great article devoted to BEETS! “The plain-Jane of root crops finally gets the recognition it deserves”.

Only in the past 2-3 years did I develop a taste for beets. I used to think they tasted like dirt, and couldnt understand why anyone would eat them. I cant pinpoint the exact moment when I ate a beet and decided I liked them. But I like them enough now to plant them in my plot at the farm.

Since I do not feel like typing this entire article into the blog, Ill post a humorous article about beta vulgaris here.

    I love beets, but may be too late for summer eating. I read on the seed packet that I can also plant in summer for a fall crop. Has anyone done this?

    “and the beet goes on” as sonny and cher woud sing.
