I love beetroot!
This isn’t in very straight lines – I don’t use a line when I’m sowing, I’m a bit more freehand. For some things that’s ok – but sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between weed seeds and the seeds you want to grow. A proper straight line allows you to see which is which more easily.

Sow regularly so you can keep picking it rather than it getting big and woody! The smaller ones cook quicker too. You can microwave them too rather than boil!
Eat cooked in salad or make a chutney with it!
