The Big Beet
Sometimes when you wait for a Monarch butterfly to hatch before you harvest your beets, they get just a tad too big. Yes, size matters. I've heard of yard long beans, but yard long beets?
We grow Rodina cylindrical type beets.I like the fact that when sliced, all of the pieces are are relatively uniform. Since I have plenty of beets the perfect size for freezing, this one just won't make the cut. Such an over achieving vegetable should be rewarded however, so instead of being dinner, this big beet gets to be just a little bit famous!
