They sprouted great and the green look good but the bulbs under are tiny. The golden beets to bought here did much better and are plum size and tasty. I’m going to try a different red type and hopefully they grow larger than bean size after 60 days in the ground.
Having shopped at Pinetree for a long while, I always have to order something. This year everything was successful except for the echinacea. I babied the seeds, used a heat mat and watched the lighting. All succumbed despite my efforts. The beets came up in the garden and I used some of the leaves for salad. Alas then the bunnies found them. Not much left. I plan to plant some in a container on the deck and hope they will survive. But my joy from Pinetree is their gardening gloves: They are wonderful. I wish I could afford to order a gross.
Ordered the Bulls Blood Beet seed along with others for planting in early summer. Haven't had luck with summer beets before. Was told by a coupler of masters, for THIS area, to hold off until mid-September. They will go into the dirt this week. We shall see.
