This is our 2nd year gardening in earnest, and we have growing... zucchini, winter squash, pie pumpkins, 6 varieties of tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, dill, basil, snow peas, blueberries, raspberries, parsley, mint, corn, lettuce, carrots, leeks, and.... beets!

I have been thinning the beets periodically with no real happiness at their growth rate until all of a sudden this morning...

Beetlets! See them? Under the water?

I will be using the greens in our minestrone tonight. I am very happy and excited to eat my own beets in a month or so.
