First post, first beets. Yes its the totally wrong time for beets. Way too hot. Probably could have planted any other time of the year and they would have done ok. But now, every bug in Mobile has had a taste of them. And I don't know long they have been in there ... the three bin sink ... but they have been in there way too long and are way too small. I think they have stopped growing. I haven't tasted it yet, but if I were to guess, I bet its pretty tough for such a small beet. Next time, plant them for the cooler season. Also keep track of when and what exactly we are planting! UGH!
