like dwight schrute, i love beets. seriously. i could eat beats at every meal and be a happy woman. i read that they are pretty easy to grow, and do well later in the season, like now, where i live. so last weekend i took the patch of garden that was supposed to grow squash (but never sprouted) and leveled it out and sprinkled a packet of seeds. i covered it with a little more soil that i had lying around, and was super pleased with myself. the next day, i realized something had been digging exactly where i put the seeds. aaargh! i can't imagine beet seeds being that delicious to anything. my husband had a bright idea to start some inside and then put them out. genius. so here are my baby beets, that i planted literally four days ago. they are already poking up out of the ground! so cute. i'm going to let them get a bit bigger before i move them outside. needless to say, i'm excited about growing some beets.
happy father's day to all my fatherly friends out there!
