Beets did okay this year, especially given my lack of proper care for them. I harvested a lot of them early in the summer, and left a lot of little weedy looking ones for later. It didn’t look like those remainders were doing much, since the beet greens never got very big or lush. I gave up on them and decided to re-seed for fall. And yet, when I went to clear out the bed, there were a lot of fat little red and yellow baby beets underneath the surface. I took them home, boiled them enough to get the skins off, and then ate them with a hillock of goat cheese.
The golden beets continue to be my favorite. The flavor is really superior. I think next year I’ll only plant the goldens.
