Well, it all started here, when these tiny red seeds( the ruby red variety of beetroot) looked very inviting.
I started with a small batch at a time, the cute saplings were thinned .
And the tiny ones, started growing their pretty foliage , brightening the pot.
I added some of the tender leaves into a salad and can I tell you , they were absolutely delicious.
And after a wait of 45 days, there was the bulbous root, all ripe and ready. I ensured that I harvested it tender.
And here it is in a rustic salad:
And the yummy beetroot flavoured yoghurt or simply beetroot raita
I was amazed at the beauty and the taste of the home grown beet. But this website here with its insightful article about the benefits of beet , got me thinking and makes me want to plant more of them.
