Reaping Beets and a Pest

We were able to reap some beets from our continer garden yesterday.

We broke it open to see if we could spot of anything inside but, no luck.

Gardening is going great. I am planning to move to herbs in our patio. Within the next 2 weeks I will get oregano, marjoram, thyme, ginger, garlic, onion, turmeric and peppermint to add to the spearmint, sweet peppers, dill, Rosemary, parsley no celery that we already have.

Beside being able to grow my own organic food, gardening is a great de-stressor. If you haven tried gardening you should do it.
