Planet Jr. x Beets

[From 8-May-2013] Beet seed in ye olde Planet Jr. hopper. Still celebrating this seeder: takes some getting to know, and well worth it. A little rusty, but working like new.

Fast Friday harvest

Chickens after harvest: Andrea M checks in with the girls after one of the quickest Friday harvests ever. Beets, carrots, a small amount of arugula and spinach from the unheated greenhouse… Several way freezing nights have left the field mostly in shades of brown.

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.
