Beet the Ruby Red

28 Dec

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.
