Beets can be planted early in the spring, as soon as the soil can be worked, and then repeat every three weeks during the summer for a steady supply. You can begin to harvest the beets as soon as they are about 1.5" in diameter. Both the beets and the tops are edible and packed with vitamins, but it is the greens that are the most nutritious.
