Beets Bulk

(Beta vulgaris) An Old World crop known to the Romans, but not cultivated for roots until much later. A delicious and easy-to-grow crop, sown in early spring or late summer in most areas, succession-planted spring through fall in cooler summer climates. Forage types yield amazing quantities of large roots for livestock, but may also be harvested for table use, both for greens and roots, when taken young. The “seeds” are actually capsules containing several seeds, so thin plantings adequately; be sure to use the thinnings as baby greens.
