successful beets!

    I decided to pull my first beetroot up from the plot. The beetroot I've grown in previous years have never really been that big, they're normally more leaf than beet. However this year is the year of the beetroot!

    I think the success of them has been down to the lack of rainfall this year. My problem before has always been that ive over watered them so they grow lush top growth and dont get chance to make a nice fat root. I roasted these with some balsamic and then had them in a salad with goats cheese - perfect!
