Again I planted Chioggia Beets from seed and did not thin properly. I should have done one beet for every 4" in one row, but squeezed more, which resulted in these mini beets. They don't even have the swirl and began to rot at the top for leaving them in the dirt too long. New lesson learned. I'll cut the tops off, save the greens for a soup and chop the beets to make hamburger patties. The sweetness will give them a great taste.
