Benefits of Growing Beetroot
Well, it’s quite a good vegetable to grow. It’s easy, it’s fairly easy to grow, it’s low maintenance and it’s quite productive. So and it’s easy to store as well, so you can pickle it. It is very versatile, you can roast it and we make beetroot brownies out of it.
So, yeah, it’s a very versatile crop. And the other thing about it as well is that you can eat the leaves. So if you if you pick them as young leaves, if you put those in your salad, they add a different color and a different taste to your salads. And it’s a real, I quite like it’s a very mild beetroot taste. It’s quite earthy. I like it in a salad.
I’m not being too exact with how deep I’m putting them because each seed is a cluster of seeds. I’d expect there to be at least one beetroot in each, in each in each module.
And you might get two or three. You might, might not get any. But because you’ve set plenty, I mean, you’ve got enough there for a good couple of rows in a garden. Keep them warm while the germinate. Yeah.
And then obviously they can come into the cool greenhouse, your cold greenhouse. So we’re in the last week of February now and you’ve already got some veggies that you’re going to be growing on ready to plant out around March, mid April.
