GROWING BEET

It's too hot to grow beet on my home garden I think.
The growth of these plants were so slow.


Here in Indonesia, beet is only grown on the high land with a very cool weather along the year.
This is a minor vegetables here.


We can find it grown on some highland more than 1000 meters from the sea level.
The best result on growing beet on my garden was about 2 cm on diameter.
That was too small...


Never stop trying...
Stay growing...
Keep Learning....

  4. I always grow beet, Endah. I love this vegetable and we cook traditional beet soup. I see your seedlings are small now, I prefer to feed them with carbamide, it grows faster.

    1. Memang butuh ketelatenan, jika bakal umbi mulai muncul di permukaan, perlu dibumbun biar tidak sampai pecah/cracking.

  8. That is the good thing about gardening - there is always something new to learn and something else to try! What will you grow instead Endah ?

  10. Endah Hallo!
    I love beets. It's a great vegetable.
    I cook them with horseradish and vinegar.
    They are delicious.
    I hope, however, your beets grow and you will have a harvest.
    Greetings.
