The Beets Go On…

…and on, late into October

Beets continue growing slowly in cold weather. (Beetroot, Beets, Betteraves, Betabel)

Baby Beet, Steamed and Dressed

This home-garden-grown baby beetroot was washed, steamed for five minutes, then dressed with olive oil and a few drops of balsamic vinegar. The root, bulb and leaves were consumed by your faithful editor. Grown in soil with only kitchen compost as a fertiliser, and no pesticides, this exquisite, nutritious beet was part of a health-promoting luncheon.
