I planted some beetroot in the garden a little while ago and have been eagerly watching it grow. As M will testify, I'm quite impatient sometimes and I kept pulling the leaves aside to see if the beetroot had grown yet. Again and again it still wasn't big enough to pick. Until last weekend, when I realised I had a number of fully grown beets ready to go!
I pulled this little beauty up in my excitement and it's now in the fridge waiting to be turned into delicious roasted beetroot salad!
