There's always one who has to show off. Those who stand out for their talent or good looks. Or because they're so different from the rest. It seems the beets are that type. I hadn't even seen these guys coming and when I opened the mini greenhouses today here they were all bright and glowing against the moistened soil. I've not grown beets before so this is an interesting development.
Arugula to add to it. These all seem to have germinated rather quickly since I started them earlier this week. I've been taking all the trays outside during the day to soak up some of the sun, then they come in at night and are placed around a heat vent. Maybe it's that extra warmth that gave them an extra boost.
