Start beets outdoors in loose, well-drained soil in early spring, or up to six weeks before first fall frost. Make a shallow trench about 1/2″ deep. Place seed tape in trench, cover with soil, and pack gently. Keep soil evenly moist. Beets prefer a cool climate and can tolerate mild frost.
Plant every two to three weeks for continuous harvest. Keep soil moist for best growth, easy harvest, and sweetest flavor.
