Then there are the leaves. Oh the delicious leaves. I like them sauteed in olive oil and garlic, I like them in salad, I like them blanched and used just like frozen spinach...the possibilities are endless.
Now just help me pray a little for my tomatoes. We NEED salsa...STAT....please grow dear tomatoes!!
Oh, and beets are one of those cool crops that we can plant TWICE in Iowa....so I'm off to sprinkle some more beet seeds. :-)
