Floppy beets! Seedlings won't stay upright

memcintoOctober 18, 2009

Don't know if I should be doing something different; beet seedlings can't stay upright. Growing OK, putting on 2nd and 3rd set of leaves, while lying flat on the ground. Let me know if I should be concerned. See pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/57085755@N00/

Thanks!

My chard is doing the same thing.

If they are putting on leaves, I don't worry.

Cool, thanks! I just found out yesterday that chard and beets are closely related!

I agree with Lazy, I'm sure they're fine. They look great in the pics, that's for sure. I don't do beets these days, but I do plant a lot of Swiss chard and mine gets a little floppy early on. As long as they're growing, you're in good shape.

Keep us posted. What else are you growing?
Take care,
Grant
