The first sowing of beetroot have been ready for harvesting for a couple of weeks, some have grown quite large and beefy looking but still taste very nice. Nothing is wasted, the hens just adore beetroot leaves. There have been plenty of salads with sliced beetroot for lunch and of course cheese and beetroot sandwiches. Mmmm. I must look around for some recipes before I end up with beetroot coming out of my ears and complaints about too many salads!
Apart from being packed with vitamins including folic acid, beetroots apparently also contain betaine and trytophan, which can help to relax you as well as contribute to a sense of well being. Oh, and they also make your wee pink! *giggle*
