Mostly-Wordless Not-Wednesday: regrow beet greens in one week, eh?

:stomp: :stomp: :stomp:


As proof that kitchen miracles so exist, here are four vegetables that regrow in one week with just water and sunshine. […] [A]ll members of the turnip family (beets, turnips, parsnips) can regrow their greens

Regrow the greens in one week? How great would that be? J’adore beet greens!!

So I tried it, using a Farmers’ Market Beet (the greens attached to this particular bunch of beets were wonderful; so were the beets themselves):

regrowing beet greens: day2
4 August 2015 – after one day
regrowing beet greens: day8
11 August 2015 – after eight days

I was pretty excited to see that a tip of a leaf had emerged after just one day. I was less than excited to see how slowly the leaf was growing. …strong growth in just one week, eh?
