|Just starting to grow|
Each winter I suggest that you cut the top of your roots and let the tops regrow for winter greens. We cut off the top part at about the shoulder (an inch or two down from the top)and set the flat cut side in a saucer or low bowl with water and place the root in the dish in a sunny window. The tops will regrow - this works with beets, radishes, celery root, rutabagas and most roots (don't eat potato sprouts - the foliage from the nightshade or solanum family is neither tasty nor good for you).We really like any members of the brassica (radishes rutabagas) or beet family - delicious. A great project you gardeners of all ages!
