Beet Tops

You can not beat beet tops this time of the year to add to tarts or have as a cooked green. These Beetroot we sown in the late summer as a salad leaf crop, and over the winter used some of the leaves as a cooked green, we left them in to go to seed, this is the moment I wait for in both summer and now, when the Beetroot run to seed, they have such great flavour but you do not get a great deal from them, I have taken also all the tops and will wait a bit till they produce a bit of seed on the side and the take them out and wait till August time for another lot.
