I’ve never successfully grown carrots and beets in my garden but this year I experimented with some grow bags from Gardener’s supply. I did plant a little thickly and these are very delicious thinnings. I would say the experiment is a resounding success and I plan to get a few more grow bags next spring. I steamed them up and served them atop grits with some chicken/spinach/feta sausage. Delish!
