You Can't Beat Beets

Roasted, pickled, stewed, or raw; hot beets, cold beets, I love them all! The greens are also a tasty treat and super nutritious — high in vitamins A and C, iron and potassium (An heirloom variety, Early Wonder, is considered the best beet for greens).

Beets are a cool season vegetable that can be sewn and harvested early in the season. They're a great choice for garden spaces that don't get full sun, as they'll tolerate part shade. For growing tips check out this article.

For heirloom and /or organic seeds, check out Botanical Interests, and Seeds or Change.

They are pretty and good for you. I am glad you enjoy them, but they are about the only vegetable I won't eat. Dirty sugar, sugary dirt.
