I plant my beets very densely so I can thin them and enjoy the greens now and the beets later on in the summer. The greens are absolutely delicious! The tops of the greens can be sauteed in olive oil with little garlic, then give them a shot of balsamic vinegar for an amazing dish. The stems can be chopped up finely and cooked down in a soup or stew, or if you make smoothies, they make a fantastically sweet and earthy drink when mixed with some yogurt and frozen strawberries.
I still have plenty of spinach, radishes, and salads as well.
Prices are $5 for a huge bundle of beet greens, $7 a gallon bag of spinach, $6 for a salad kit, and $2 for a bundle of 10 or so radishes.
I’m open from 8-3 Saturday and 8-noon on Sunday. Stop by and grab some fresh veggies for your dinners this weekend!
