The beets are done...
Using a recipe found here...
I am very pleased with the results,
and they taste so good!
We are going to plant some more beets and hopefully get a second crop. It is a bit risky planting them this late with the heat, but a risk I will take.
Some of you asked how I manage to grow veggies in the heat. This year we have put in wicking beds like found here and here and got the plants in early so they were well established before the heat arrived. We also have shade cloth to pull over if needed, which we haven't had to yet.
Yesterday was 38C (100.4F) and today is the same. Trying to sleep with a 25C (77F) night was fun!
Wishing you well,
