    I set aside a bed for beets in a high place protected from the cold wind, which dries out and warms up quickly in spring. I dig the site in advance on the bayonet of a shovel, covering 1-4 kg of humus per 6 square meter with the addition of 60 g of potassium sulfate and 40 g of superphosphate. Then I level the site and form ridges facing south, cutting grooves on them about 4 cm deep (when the soil settles, they will become smaller). Before the onset of stable frosts, I cover the beds with spunbond or film.
    I put high-quality loose humus in a bag and put it in the garage so that it does not freeze.
    In mid-November, I select the largest beet seeds, immerse them in a pale pink solution of potassium permanganate for 3-5 seconds, then rinse with water and dry. I sow it into the grooves and sprinkle it with harvested humus. I mulch the beds with spunbond.
    In the spring, when the snow melts, I remove the mulch, cover the beds with foil so that the earth warms up sooner. When shoots appear, I remove the shelter.

    Beet on the windowsill
    I prepare salads and borscht from tender beetroot leaves all year round. In winter, I grow beets on the windowsill.
    I put 2 cm of expanded clay on the bottom of the box for seedlings. I pour steamed garden soil, spill it with a pink solution of potassium permanganate. I dig small beet root vegetables in moist soil, I do not fall asleep the growth point. I keep it near the battery in the kitchen, watering often, but little by little. The warmer the beets, the sooner it begins to sprout. But this plant does not need a lot of light.

    As I grow, I cut the leaves. When they begin to grow back more slowly, I replace the old root crops with fresh ones.

    Last year I bought a successful beet variety. This year I did not find such seeds. Is it possible to plant the root crops that I have stored to receive seeds? How to do it right?

      - Plant root crops 55-65 cm apart (leave about 3 cm of apex above the soil surface). If the land on the site is poor, before planting, bring along a humus bucket per 1 sq. Meter of garden bed. Then, once every 7-8 days, water the plantings, pouring 1 bucket of water over a bucket of water. If heavy rain fell the day before, refuse to water. Weed the beds as needed. When the stems of the peduncles grow by 15-18 cm, tie them to the pegs so that they do not break from a gust of wind. Collect the seeds when they dry, but before they begin to crumble.
