Carrots & Beets – My So-Called Steinbeck Life


Our urban beet (and carrot) farming has been very fruitful. We’re practicing a rotating-crop urban-tilth method, and farming in just four small beds and a few big bins. After we harvested half a bed of  beets and made pickled beets, we planted that half of the bed with MORE beets (god help us). We have a lot of beets. We feel a kinship with the Joads. And Dwight Schrute. At least the beets are pretty.

  1. How about beet juice? And when you drink it you will have the added fun of peeing pink.
    Beets, carrots, celery, apple or beets, cucumber, pineapple
