The crop of beets that hubby grew in the spring did well. We got some yummy greens and equally yummy roots from them. That's the thing I love best about beets: not only are they sweet and tasty, but you can eat all parts of the plant, not just the fruits or the leaves or the stems like some wasteful veggies I won't name. *cough* rhubarb *cough*
Besides, who can resist the gorgeous purplish-red of these babies?
