216 beet seeds


That is how many we started today in our greenhouse.

We need to start more but some we will start directly in the ground. These starts will help us jump start our crop as well as our pig feed. We have 11 piglets in a paddock. Right now, they are not eating that much as we feed them whey from our cheese making and scraps from our kitchen.


The Burpee kit comes with coconut fiber starter pellets. They must be hydrated with water and I added some soil on the top.

I planted Detroit Red Beet seeds on the top and watered them in.

The plastic cover added to the top to keeps the moisture and heat in.
