This Title Will Be Free of a "Beet the Jets" Pun

I planted them in July. And they grew. And grew into the little red nubs that will stain your fingers better than Easter egg dye. Today seemed like as good a day as any to pluck them out and turn them into a salad. Just in time for a meal before the Chargers cream the Jets.

(The garden. And the help.)


(The haul.)


(Lettuce, beets, walnuts, goat cheese, and croutons. Finished with a balsamic vinaigrette.)

Be sure to cook and eat the beet greens!! That's almost the best part!

Oh, and beet the Jets! :D

I'm sure the salad was better than the game; too bad the Chargers couldn't extend their winning streak a little longer :-( What's the next crop you'll be planting?
