While furiously weeding the garden (trying to make room for some fall crops), I accidentally pulled a few root vegetables. These golden beets look very pretty, but I have no clue if they are ready (or if they are too mature). I've never eaten beets, so I'm not really sure how to tell if they are ready. Any suggestions?
I also pulled this slender little carrot accidentally. I'm not actually sure where it came from because I don't remember planting carrots in that bed. I've had terrible luck growing carrots, so this is the best one I've grown this year! It was very tasty snack with a very carroty flavor.
