I planted my beets probablyI planted my beets probably about 45 days ago, and they germinated like crazy, but they are all extremely floppy and have had trouble standing up, and many have died. They are very top heavy with biggish leaves growing well but no strong stem and they keep falling over, and there is NO root swelling. Is there any hope for beetroot? What could I have done wrong? They were very crowded but I thinned them out twice in a pretty reasonable timeframe. I did get a decent amount of greens but not really worth all the work, not sure if I want to try them again next year.
