Planting out beetroot

The little beetroot plants I grew from seed in a box with moist tissue are now ready to be planted. outside. There doesn’t seem to be much of a difference between the size of the plants I planted directly into soil and those I grew from seed at home.

I decided to plant them near the beetroot I planted directly in the soil, to fill gaps where nothing grew and also in a second row close by so I can remember where they all are!
