Pinch ... Punch ... First day of September.
This is my Beetroot 'crop', it looks lush, has healthy looking leaves but that's where it ends. There are no beetroots, nothing's happened. A neighbour suggested that I planted them too late (not according to the seed packet) and that I should give up & bin them now. I did read somewhere that it can take 3 months before harvesting but not sure at what stage they will start to look slightly beetroot-shaped. Mine aren't 3 months old yet, so I'm tempted to leave them & wait...they do look pretty with their maroon-streaked leaves and they've made an effort...what do you think?
