You Can't Stop The Beet! A classic garden staple, beets can be harvested outside seven months a year and offer more rewards than just their delicious root bulbs. Trimmed beet leaves make a great addition to any salad and help make this root one of the most versatile plants in your garden! Plant it outside alongside your other leafy greens or a pot indoors in a ten-inch deep container.
Planting and Care Instructions
Plant your beet seedling in well draining soil, burying it deep enough so its stem is well supported by soil fill and stands upright. Place in partial to full sun and water twice per week.
You can harvest at any size but taste best at full size, this is when the beets are protruding out of the dirt. Harvest the leaves as well and add them to a summer salad.
