You Can't Beat a Beet

That's what I get to hear my hubby say every time we're working in the garden around the beets.  Oh, they are so sweet and soft...so much better than store bought.  I am sure anyone who doesn't think they like beets would like these fresh from the earth.  Our favorite use:  roasted in olive oil with salt and pepper tossed in a salad.  We even use the tops, chopped up, in the salad.

Mmm... I can't wait till ours are ready, too. I love them steamed with broccoli and carrots. Will try them roasted, soon!

I LOVE beets, but alas now that the doc has me on the South Beach Diet I don't eat beets (or carrots, white potatoes, white rice, sugar, white flour, etc). But I am feeling better and much healthier so I'll enjoy your pics!
