Beet it Baby!











Now, THIS is a French Breakfast Radish. Just decided to add it along with the beet pics.

Beets: Roast, peel (use rubber gloves), and slice. A drizzle of olive oil, then salt and pepper. Simple, beautiful, tasty.

I love beets! Are you growing them too?

So pretty!

Yes. What Eileen said.

We have some little beets in the garden.

I am currently growing beets..and fennel, corn,herbs, radishes, cukes..lemon and "regular", beans (two kinds), carrots (rainbow kind), and tons of tomatoes. I just ate one ripe extra carotene tomato yesterday! They are orange! I cannot wait for my heirloom black tomatoes to get big and ripe. I have 11 tomato plants. I also planted native CA wildflowers out front.

I will continue to garden all year long.

BTW..the beets are from the farmers market. Mine are not ready yet.

Oh, and yellow summer squash too.

sexy beet pictures! I, too, love roasted beets. Another good way: roast them in chunks with chunked potatoes (olive oil, salt toss of course). Drool.....
