Roasted beetroot from the garden...

Last spring I planted out some old beetroot seed I found in my vegetable seed box... we got some beetroot plants up... but not many...  we harvested the crop on the weekend to accompany a roast with friends....

Roasted with potatoes and sweet potato, the beetroot combined beautifully with the pork we roasted.

I will definitely be finding some more beetroot seed for next season (this lot was from Diggers Seed Club).. and if I can plant more beetroot next year I will be able to let some go to seed and harvest the seed for the following years crop or to share among friends.
