Red Beet Sprouts

BeetStarts.jpg

Tiny green sprouts from the seeds of red beets are emerging from the rich, dark soil in the raised beds of the vegetable garden.  I’ve never grown beets before, so this is a learning experience.  The seed packet states to thin the plants until they are about 3″ apart, and the green leafy tops of the pulled plants make an excellent addition to a salad.  This is fun!

More tomorrow,
