Five-Month Beets

These beets were harvested on March 6, 2014. They were planted on the last day of Sept. 2013. It took five months to get one or two beets that are 2 inches across. They are unbelievably sweet and tender, but they took entirely too long to grow. I think my yard just does not get enough sunlight in the fall/winter months. Time to move on to 2014 tomatoes!!!
