Planting Directions: Sow seed ½” to 1” deep in spring when soil temperature is 50? to 80? with 75? optimum. Can be planted outdoors 3-4 weeks before last frost. Beets grow and produce best in cool weather, mulch the soil if necessary or plant in shade of other vegetables. Keep soil evenly moist at all times. Work soil deeply in the spring adding compost or a general garden fertilizer that is low in nitrogen. Thin plants to 2”-3” apart. Plant again in late summer for a fall crop. When the plants are young, the tops can be used as ‘greens’.
