Remember last summer/fall when I was so saddened by the lack of germination in my beet seeds? Well, 2015 is the year I actually grew beets.
My daughter enjoyed pulling up about 3 or 4 pounds of them last Sunday. The beets remained in the garden carry basket all week. Out on the sun porch. I would look at them fondly as I dragged myself off to work. Three days in a row of being the only one with a key to open the store.
One of those days I woke up at 7:20 and had time to brush my teeth, get my hair wet, dress and walk out the door. I managed to open the store before 7:45.
And I was in a terrible mood. No coffee. No cereal. No lunch. No reason to live.
Anyway, back to the beets.
I kept looking at them, wondering when I would have time to wash them, wrap them in foil and then bake them for a couple of hours. Well, that time wasn't until this morning. Saturday.
I just peeled and ate one. Not as soft as I would like it to be but dark red and sweet. Delicious.
And best of all.......home grown.
