my piece of dirt, growing food, eating it and enjoying the happy things in between.

I grew a few rows of beetroot. I normally don't as I don't eat it much (except sliced on burgers) but when I found a golden variety and a pink striped I knew it had to be better than the deep staining traditional variety. It was a mix of three colours so I still have the purpley ones too. AND JUST IN CASE YOU'RE THINKING "er.. they're a bit small!" THEY TASTE BETTER THIS SIZE! :op
We ate the first lot grated in a salad with carrot etc. YUUUM!
Here you can see the lovely colour of the golden beet and stripes of the pink beet.
I boiled the larger golden beets until soft and MY GOODNESS they were sooo sweet and tasty!! Here's a definite beetroot growing convert.
