Giant Beet Prep- Help Need a Mentor
I have started growing big vegetables this summer and have enjoyed working with pumpkins, sunflowers and beets. I belong to the Utah Pumpkin growers and have found some help with growing my pumpkins but do not have any contacts for growing giant beets. I need a beet mentor! I want to show my beets at the Utah Pumpkin weigh off and hope to get some others interested in growing big beets. I don't know the best process to harvest and prepare for weigh in or the best way to display my big beets. I hope someone in the group can help or knows someone that has this kind of expertise. I think I read that European Vegetable competitions group beets into three categories: sugar, mammoth and table. I am growing the mammoth and table beets. I think my mammoth beet is quite large but I don't know that much about these beets. Copy and past the URL below to see a few of my beets.
Anyway I know this is a long post but I really could use some help.
