Home-Garden Beets


Beets are an easy-to-grow, cool-weather crop.
Spring Planting of Beets
Plant beet-seeds in the garden one month before your area's last frost date; in three weeks, plant another row or two of them, and so on, so that you will have fully-grown beets ready at different times of the summer. Beets do germinate in cooler soil, but according to Barbara Pleasant of Mother Earth News, they sprout more quickly when soil temperatures are at or above 50°F.
