White Beetrrot

Postby bigrog106th » Tue Aug 28, 2018 4:24 pm

I've started to harvest my Detroit beetroot and a few of them are white instead of red. Any idea why?

Some actually white beetroot seed got into the packet during production maybe? I can't imagine it is anything to do with the Detroit themselves.

Do not put off thanking people when they have helped you, as they may not be there to thank later.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet
