As silly as this may sound, when the Pres came home from BJs with a planter, I was glad. Setting it up on the deck which gets S-SW sun, he then filled it with bags of dirt while I ran to our local Tractor Supply to buy seed. That was back in May. Planting beets, scallions and a few potato eyes, I watered religiously in between the rain given to us by Mother Nature.
Yes, each time I pass by, my mouth watering beets seem to be getting bigger and bigger. And there is nothing better than a FRESHLY DUG potato topped with some sour cream and chopped scallions!!
