I planted beets about 75 - 80 days ago, they seem to be floundering so I pulled a bunch to take a look - they look like a purple carrot, am I doing something wrong? Should I have left them in the ground longer. Since I am in FL should I have planted them say now instead of end of Aug/ Sept. Thanks for advice. It is not like I will starve or anything, nobody actually likes them in my family except me, but I would love to try to get root veggies growing. I seem to be doing something wrong, the carrots I planted in Spring were pathetic as well. Thanks!
