Organic gardening update - harvesting the beetroot


Some of the beetroot is ready for harvesting as baby beets and we have left some to grow into full size. Beetroots are a wonderful source of folic acid. When I was pregnant with my eldest daughter, I craved beetroot and ate it every day. At the time I could not understand my craving. It was only later that I learned the importance of folic acid to the development of a healthy foetus. Beetroot is also packed with antioxidants including vitamins A and C which help prevent degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer. 

Need to detox? Beetroot stimulates the liver's detoxification process and its fibre content helps prevent the build up of toxic waste in the bowel.

There are many ways you can use beetroot. Try it roasted with garlic as a side dish. Next Monday I will be doing a recipe using beetroot, but for now why not try the Beetroot and Chocolate buns with coconut cream 'frosting' in the next blog post. Please see-
