I've always had a garden. I enjoy a challenge! I love the rewards when it all comes together. And I learn something new nearly every day. Perfect 🌻

Well there is mini and there is mini! I ordered these beetroot plugs from Thompson and Morgan back in march and then cancelled them on the 10th of April as The ones I had grown from seed turned out okay. However I now have 48 beetroot plug plants I suppose I better find a home for them. 🤯

Wow. Puts mine to shame. Growing them for the first time this year. And in pots. How do you know when they are ready to pick?

Yes I’ve roasted them in double layer foil. Don’t peel at this stage Leave some tops and roots on to stop them bleeding. I’m going to peel and quarter them and roast with garlic thyme and olive oil today. Charlotte - you know they are ready when you can see the beet above the soil. Anything from a golf ball size is good to pick. @charlotte @LyndaClack

Third set of Beetroot seeds germinated over Easter in my office. The others were very poor. Let’s hope I have more luck with these.
