I recently complained that we are running out of garden space in the yard. Well, I caved and dug up the last available bed space. Last night we planted beets, carrots, and kohlrabi in the narrow bed. We planted LOTS of beets and carrots, and we're hoping to experiment with storing them both in the ground and in cans for the winter. I used to hate beets, but they're really growing on me. Perhaps its because little homegrown beets are much tastier than the behemoths you often find at the store.
Did you know that beets have more sugar content than any other vegetable?
