As the end of the growing season approaches,
the dilemma is
"When to pull up the root vegetables?"
This large beet was mostly out of the ground
anyway. Today was the day.
I measured it's width to be about 6",
sized up it's girth at 16" around,
and then used some of its smaller leaves
and shredded pulp
to make a refreshing salad.
Next, pickled beets!
