It's a sup-ah beet, sup-ah beet...'s sup-ah beet-tay, YOW!

Scarlet, threatening to eat our mondo beet.

Why is it always the crop that you kinda like, but don't love that always grows like gangbusters? What am I going to do with all of these beets? The kids won't eat them. I tried selling them on the old "They'll make your tinkle pink!" angle. No takers.


  1. If I was your neighbor, I would have gladly taken your extra beets.

  2. Beets? I usually do a whole bushel a year - can them anyhoo. Send me your email to tkjtbair at gmail dot com, and I'll send you the two recipies I use. I do pickled beets and Harvard beets - pretty yummy and easy too:) As for the gas station cappucino - I think I'm lemonade and cherry vodka....maybe that will give me more of a Have a great day

  3. You can substitute them for carrots in carrot cake, frost it with cream cheese frosting as usual and call it devil's food cake or something. Delicious!

  4. Elizabeth - Interesting idea! You pretty much can't go wrong with cake. :)
