Easter Beets

Morning Beet PatrolHere’s the answer to the question Do beets grow in South Texas? These are some of the second harvest of a couple rows we planted in January. Next year, more rows starting in November.

A few weeks ago we roasted some individually wrapped in aluminum foil and drizzled with olive oil, then served with crumbled bacon and onions over steamed beet greens, accented by a vinaigrette dressing. They were delicious.

Disclosure: The next day after you eat them, they make you pee pink.

    Would they get bigger if you left them in the ground longer? Mom

    The ones still in the ground will get bigger now that I’ve thinned out the rows (unless it gets too hot too quickly, which is always a possibility).

    Addendum to your disclosure – if you eat enough of them, you might think you are pooping blood. You aren’t. Don’t ask me how I know about that.

    OK I won’t!
