On July 5th, we took our first beets out of the ground.  We weren't able to pick all of them since some had clearly not grown enough, however, the ones we did pick were decent sized and were ready to be pulled.  We grew the cylindra variety, which have more of a cylinder shape rather than the bulb shaped Detroit varieties.  We will likely plant another couple of rows of Detroit Dark Reds to ensure a fall harvest.  8 pounds of beets in total.
