Growing beets hydroponically

I am going to attempt to grow beets in an ebb and flow system, however, they will be harvested long before they mature. We like beet greens much more than we like full grown beets.

To start this batch I am using the nutrients I purchased from Vertigro using 3 ounces of nutrients in 7 gallons of water. The TDS measured about 1200 and the pH was 6.0 exactly.

It always amazes me how quickly seedlings grow after they have been transplanted into one of these systems. I will post another photo in a week or so for comparison.
