I’m a Proud Mama

To some beets! (You silly gooses who were thinking other things, stop now.) Just harvested two more full mail bins from the garden and I’m extremely pleased. The beets were large and gorgeous. Most of the greens were in good shape. And the taproots were LOOOONG, which is exactly what I wanted to see. I know I’m bragging but I can’t help it. Last year our beet crop was so-so, and I didn’t see a tap root longer then about 5 inches.

Sheet mulching for the win, again.
