While I'm on the theme of winter root vegetables - these are beets I pulled from my garden on Sunday. They are a lot smaller than they appear here. I'm sure they will be tasty, but next year I hope to be able to grow good sized beets. I think beets may be a crop that needs more sun than I have in my home garden, so I'll plan to grow them in my new plot next year.
