Beets from my garden! I could not have been more excited. I grew them from seed the winter, can't remember when exactly, may be October or November. It was an experiment. I planted and told myself I wouldn't tend to them too much since the days were getting shorter. I watered them initially and then when Fall Back (daylight savings occurred), I stopped going into the garden since it was too dark to see anything. On the weekend, I noticed that they were growing and doing pretty well and before I knew it, it was time to pick them, and this is the first batch I picked. I had never been so excited. I have a second batch going now, and I'll probably get a bigger and better batch since I will be thinning them for better growth. Can't wait!
