When my daughters were young, I always welcomed a chance to do a little teaching with them or their friends. Now that they’re grown, I have grandchildren for that.
I’m not a teacher by profession, but just love to teach. But even teachers have to obtain their knowledge somewhere. When we were selling at our local craft and produce market, the Hampton Market, I had the occasion to speak with a ‘real’ teacher. She told me about how she’d bought some beet greens, cut the greens off to use, planted the small beet roots back into the ground and they’d begun to sprout new leaves.

So, I bought some, brought them home and did the same.
We were having two of our grandsons over for the night, so I took this as an opportunity to do some teaching with them.
If the beets get too big, I may need to re-plant them into the ground, but for now we’ll see how it goes.
My grandsons, Blake and Logan helped me plant and water the beets into a planter. It gave me the chance to teach about growing things and give them the opportunity to see something they’d planted, grow.
