Beets are root vegetables that also offer edible leaves. There are many varieties of beets with a number of root colors, sizes, and flavors--a rainbow of beet options.
Direct seed beets into the garden, or into the final container you'll use to grow them indoors. Thin seedlings so that there are a couple of inches between each remaining seedling. Use a balanced granular vegetable fertilizer in the soil or growing media at seeding time. Then side-dress the beets or use a liquid fertilizer one or two more times during their growing cycle.
