One of the best veg to grow, I think. They taste so much better than shop bought when cooked and eaten straight after digging up! Such a great earthy taste!

Thanks Drc, thats strange I've just been reading through your blogs and wondering were in East Sussex.
The beetroot were lovely or still are, still have at least another doz to pull.
This year I grew them straight into the ground instead of doing them in pots. I then thined them out.
