A vegetable that can't be beat for taste, nutrition

The first of our fall beet crop was harvested at Windcrest Farm this week for market. Both a fall and a spring crop, beets are fast growing, easy to grow in the home garden and give us not only a nutritious, versatile root vegetable but wonderful greens also. Beets include red, gold, white, and striped varieties.
