Planted first seeds outside today.   Lettuce and beets.  3 types of beets.  Beets are this year’s “experimental” veg.  Each year I try to grow something new.  Usually I fail miserably.  We’ve tried eggplant, broccoli, artichokes, and maybe had one serving of whatever we were trying to grow.  We’ve tried melons of various types and never once actually eaten a melon grown in our garden.  We had modest success with brussels sprouts.  We have high hopes for beets.   Last year I “discovered” one could plant beets in late summer and decided to try, figuring I’d scoop up some marked down seeds at the hardware store.  No luck there or a couple of other places.  Apparently beets sell out.
