I am a huge fan of trying new seeds and growing new strains and kinds of plants in the garden, sometimes its a huge success and sometimes its a big old flop, it won`t grow, or it does but I am pushing the planting in terms of weather or days, and its just starting to produce an bam.. Frost … all dead
but I was sad about these ones, they will get one more try this coming year.. mainly because they grew so well and I am leary on if they got harvested at the right time or not.. or what happened at all in the end of the garden season.
You see while I have notes on things up until I fell and broke bones, I am truly unsure of what the watering was like afterwards to harvest time, now we have really nice regular rains, so in truth, that does not really cut it with me..
I really! dislike plants that need to be babied at that stage in the game.. as seeds, yes, as wee tikes ok.. as bigger.. DEAL .. LOL
now that other thing that can cause woody beets is overgrown.. they don`t look over grown in terms of what they should be, but I don`t know when they were taken out of the ground, because I was in alberta..
So did they come out late… it would have been a matter of weeks at most.. Again.. really, I don`t like that fussy of a plant.. Sometimes , I like to stagger havesting of beets and I have never had a issue..
IF anyone know of other reason`s for woody beets, I am all ears..
These get one more try this coming summer and if they do it again.. they get moved to the black list of DO NOT GROW :)
the pigs and the hounds are really enjoying them though.. yum, yum
