In time to the beet

I have recently began growing beetroots. I’ll be honest, I don’t have a clue what I am doing. I have never grown anything before. I don’t even cook. However, beetroots are a favourite of mine and when Mr Keir brought home a one pound grow-your-own special from the pound shop, how could I resist? It has taken about 14 days for them to grow this long and I have had to pull a few out because they were looking a little worse for wear. Below are those that are growing quite strong, although they will need repotting soon. But for the time being let’s admire their amazing fluro-burgundy colour.  They are very in tune with the jewel tone trend for  A/W11 and shall hopefully be a little more fully grown in time for the Autumn season. If they aren’t dead.
