Journal December 14, 2014 - Indoor gardening growing conditions
Beets, as opposed to chard and lettuce, are sort of a multiple purpose crop. We take a few leaves when the plants are young to include in a salad, the greens are boiled and served as a side dish, while the beets are roasted and served separately.
The entire lettuce crop was picked, as every lettuce variety will sooner or later begin to go to seed, so it is best to pick it before that process begins. During its growing cycle we picked some leaves to be included in sandwiches and also had several salads with out meals.
