    My planting in the garden is never without beets.
    It is rich in betaine, which helps in the treatment of depression, and tryptophan, which is called a substance of good mood.
    I usually plant varieties of different maturity, so that you can eat useful roots from the beginning of summer and until the next harvest.

    Beet consumption improves digestion, helps to cleanse the body of toxins and toxins, and even improves mood. But, as in everything, it is necessary to observe the measure. Salad or other dish from beets, so that they would benefit the body, it is enough to cook 2-3 times a week.

    In the dense soil, the beetroot often undergoes a root in the transplant. Such plants do not live, but wither, and you will not get a normal harvest. So I developed my own technology.
    After pouring a lot of water on the garden bed and letting her rest for a couple of hours, I cut the shovel with a shovel of the shovel on the pit you need for the beet. And then just fill the roots of transplanted seedlings. They straighten out, and the plants grow very quickly.

    Why am I planting cylindrical beets? Yes, because I love to cook and eat borscht. Culinary specialists will understand me - it’s much more convenient to peel, chop and rub a cylindrical root crop than a round one. In addition, this beet has a pleasant bright red color, without pale veins, it is tasty and juicy. Another advantage I note is that it is well stored, resistant to pests and with proper care gives a wonderful harvest.
    It is important, of course, to take into account that the soil is highly affected by productivity. If she is too sour, then the beet will either be very frail, or will not grow at all. So with increased acidity in the bed, add lime or dolomite flour. Beets grow well where carrots, cabbage, cucumbers or onions were previously planted. The plant needs a lot of light (otherwise the root will be unsweetened and shallow), and it will not tolerate the cold soil well, which means that it should be sown at the very end of spring or even in the 1-th decade of June, when the soil warms to at least 6 °. At cooling, crops should be sheltered. Beets are very sensitive to boron and magnesium, but it is contraindicated in fresh manure. It is also important to find a golden mean in watering: overmoistening can lead to rotting of the roots, and a deficiency will have a bad effect on the growth and taste of the root.
