How to grow beets?
I love beets, and now that I have cleared some room in my garden, I'd like to grow them at home. What is the best time of year to plant? What kind of space do they need? What are the common problems (pests, etc)?
Usually in temperate climates beets can be grown year round. In cold climate spring through summer/fall. Beets are a shallow root vegetable so nice loose well drained soil that is rich in organic matter is a good start. Pests.... any of the root boring beetles, earwigs, etc. For the green... aphids, and birds. Chard is another great crop to grow with beets. Spacing: about 2 inches apart so that they have room to develop. I would encourage you to plant several different varieties of beets...including the white ones. Enjoy.
