Today’s beet harvest from our raised bed garden. Harvesting beets from our raised beds puts us one step closer to canning pickled beets tomorrow for pickled beets and eggs. Recipe to be included in our follow up video. We grow our beets in garden soil amended with bone meal which is a good source of phosphorus for root crops. We use no additional fertilizer on those beds, and the main soil amendment or component is peat moss. All parts of a beet are edible, including the greens. Ours had some insect damage, so we will be feeding them to the chickens in exchange for organic eggs. Vegetable gardening, we normally plant / grow our beets in the spring, but we will also be planting / growing them again this Fall. We will also be harvesting a second bed of beets in a couple weeks.
