If you're reading this in Texas or any other mid-western states that are enduring a heinous drought of epic proportions, I'm just glad my computer doesn't have an app that allows you to mercilessly slap me silly or hands would sprout from my computer screen like suckers on a tomato plant.
Tap tap tap.... The monitor seems solid. Whew! I'm relieved!!
Anyway, back to the beets. They were getting more expensive by the minute as I poured city water over their leafy green tops, so I pulled them up. A salad of steamed beets, nectarines and goat cheese is on the menu for dinner.
I grew these Chiggia beets in a pot on my patio, which explains my puny harvest.
