Beets are root vegetables that are packed with nutrients and vitamins. They have a lot of benefits and doctors, and nutritionists recommend that everyone eat beets regularly. They taste great when pickled and can be added to soups and salads.
If you don’t like the taste of beets, you can mix them with other fruits and vegetables in shakes and smoothies to hide the taste but still get the nutrition. You can find beets in most grocery stores and markets, or you can grow your own.
Since beets grow underground, they are fairly hardy and easy to grow. Growing your own beets means you always have some on hand to use in your favorite recipes. Instead of running to the store, you can just run out to your garden and harvest what you need.
Here are some tips for caring for your beets. If you take care of them, your beats will taste great.
1. Consider Growing The Beets In Containers
Beets are not picky about where they grow. As long as the soil is good and healthy, the plants can grow well. That means you can easily grow the plants in containers. There are many advantages to growing plants in containers, especially beets. You can place the containers anywhere you want them, and also move them if needed.
Beets can be picky about the amount of sun and water they receive. If you plant the beets in a container and they aren’t doing well in one area, you can move them to a different area without having to transplant the plants and risk shocking or killing them. Containers also come in handy if you plant your beets outside too early and realize it might still frost.
You can move the plants inside your basement or even a kitchen until the cold weather passes. Just make sure you place them by a window, so they get plenty of sunlight.
