Here's another update from our back patio garden!!
One of the weirdest things that the kids and I planted this year was Beets. I have never had a garden, let alone grown things like beets (typically not something people are volunteering to eat)...but I was excited to see if we could get them to grow...because I actually like eating them (in the pickled version).
So today, I pulled up our first "BEET". No one told me when I would know they were ready, but after seeing how big it was...the other one that's growing hasn't reached this size yet...I figured I could pull it! And as usual...I am impressed that things like this have actually survived and flourished with an inexperienced gardener (me) tending their keep. I am already planning what we will plant next year!
Now...to find some recipes on how to cool and pickle this baby and I'll be all set to have a yummy late night snack! Wanna join me?
