Chiogga Beets

I love chioagga beets. They are so cute and peppermint striped! Even though the colors kind of cook out, I still love them and try to grow them every year. Here is one that I harvested a few weeks ago:
We mostly just ate the greens, but isn't it cute? I think next year I'll buy some deeper pots to plant them in (and start them waaay earlier, so they'll actually get bigger and worthy to eat on their own.) Oh, and maybe add some sand to the soil; that's supposed to help with root vegetables, right? (it may actually let my carrots grow to be more than tops too....)
