This year will be our fourthThis year will be our fourth year for planting beets. Normally we plant ruby reds or detroit reds. Our soil is heavy alkline with cleche rock, I try and remove as much of the rocks as possible but we never get rid of them. I usually plant the last week in Feb. or first week in Mar. Haven't had a bad year yet. First year we canned around 25 qrts. Last year we canned over 100 qrts.
