Dude That Is So Beet
hehe. We take'm where we can get'm around here, especially after a long week. Seriously, we are like maniacal about beets around here at the wine wall. One of our favorite vegetables. Sweet, earthy, versatile- and despised by many. Remember the litte beets we pulled a while back? Well these are what the big guys look like now. They seem to love the black as night soil down at the P-Patch. They are the size of baseballs. Behind the basket in the last picture is the winter kale, which we will explain in a future post. Suffice it to say that the winter garden is already going strong here in Seattle!
BTW, these are the appropriately bourgeois heirloom Italian variety known as chiogga.
