I LOVE Beets!

I planted beets about 2 weeks ago.  The seeds have sprouted and are growing additional leaves.
Heirloom Beet Seedling

Unfortunately, Rita (my female cat) ate the tops off 3 of them.  To remedy the situation, I planted about 20 seeds this weekend.  I ran out of plastic containers so I used recycled toilet paper rolls.
I have been buying beets at the farmer's Market every Sunday.  They are cheaper than buying canned beets from the store and I know there are no preservative when I cook them.  I simply chop, add olive oil and bake at 375 until they are tender.  I store them in the fridge until I am ready to eat them.  Sometimes I add them to my salad and other times I just eat them right out of the container.
