Beets are a cool-season crop and grow well in the cool temperatures of spring and fall. They do poorly in hot weather.
Beets are well suited to large or small home gardens since they require little room. They are grown for both the roots which usually are pickled and the young tops which are used as greens. About 10 feet of row per person will provide enough beets to use fresh or for canning. (3 pages)
