Beautiful Beets

We pulled the first of our beetroot this week. Glorious ruby red and bright pink globes, destined for greatness in a starring role in Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen Garden Companion recipe for beetroot, avocado, walnut and pink grapefruit (and lettuce) salad.

It was one of the dishes served up last week at a big dinner for friends that made me so proud of our garden. We all sat around on those (previously posted) benches drinking mojitos with lots of fresh mint from the garden before eating a tasty meal which used garden produce in every course. Far too much was eaten and drunk and a merry time was had by all.


  1. And you should be proud. There's no greater gift to share with your friends and family than a little love from your garden.

  2. yum amazing, my mouth is watering, exactally what i feel like for dinner. how satisfying nice work xx

  3. Looks absolutely delicious! Can't wait to pull up my first beetroot in a couple months... how long did yours grow for? xo m.
