I planted beets the last week of August for a late fall harvest. I had used old seed so I planted them thickly, but they still germinated heavily. So we’re now thinning them and using the baby beets in salads, as a vegetable side, and in drinks. The greens are looking great. Here’s a plate of them. We use roots and all, just wash the whole plant.
Judy took half the beet greens, and added half a frozen banana and some raspberries we picked last night. We didn’t grow the banana.
Blended with a cup of water, you have a good tasting and good for you greens and fruit smoothie!
