Beets

About:

Like all root crops, beets are magical—when they grow like they're supposed to! They have the added bonus of tops that are almost as tasty as the roots.

Tips:

Sow one month before last frost date, as soon as soil is workable. Soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing. Work seedbeds 8 inches deep; sow 1/2 inch deep and thin to 4 to 6 inches apart.
