what a feeble harvest, fortunately i have a second crop under way and looking better than this bunch!

not sure of the cause but it is disappointing to see so many small bulbs, most of the larger ones were split and unusable.  i’ll do the instant pickle with the smaller ones and slice and dry the bigger ones.

i’ve had a few failures/mediocre results in this particular bed…turnips come to mind so maybe it is in need of a rotation and some new soil.  that said, i did top up the soil and add composted manure in the spring.

  1. Stan, do you eat the beet greens? They are absolutely delicious. When I buy fresh beets, I only buy the ones with the greens attached – that way i get two vegetables for the price of one.
