Massive Beetroot

I had just come back from 2 hours of gardening at the school when I thought I had better check on how my garden was growing. My eye was drawn to my small crop of Beetroot as some of the leaves were becoming quite exceptional in size. I made the decision to pull and got the biggest shock to discover that my garden could be something straight out of a children's book. OK, I'm really thinking of a book about a giant turnip, but beetroots kind of look similar. ;)

It was enormous!

Weighing in at 2.3kg with the leaves off.

Given a little clean up, these Chioggia heirloom beetroots are a beautiful red♥
