Thursday Snapshot: Chioggia Beets

Chioggia Beets make an appearance.

Awhile back I mentioned some beet seeds that had not yet sprouted. I worried at that time about my soil, the foundation of my garden and all it produces. Was there something lurking there that I needed to know about? Would I ever see the beets of my dreams?

Above is a photo of the beets recently harvested. Imperfect but deliciously beautiful, we have since enjoyed them in salad or raw and dipped in the husband's famous miso mix. My soil, it seems, is not in such bad shape, although I still pay attention to what is happening there. As a good citizen gardener, it's the least I can do these days.
