Cleaning up the field: beets

It’s the last of the beets, a mix of varieties – Red Ace,  Bulls Blood, Chioggia – from different beds, golf ball-sized, cold-sweetened, nice! Leaves, not in the greatest shape, were trimmed, leaving enough stem to avoid bleeding. Around 50 lbs, and that’s it for this year’s beets.

  1. They look good. It’s nice to still have fresh food in November and know there’s more coming.

    I love my beets especially Chioggia. Love the term “cold sweetened” because it’s such a late fall and early winter occurrence and they’re just yummier. Thanks for the wonderful image.
