We planted beets for the first time and I didn't know when to harvest them. Our gardener was planting our potatoes when he asked if we were going to eat our beets. I forgot about them. They were seven inches in width, and 6 inches in height, so I started looking on-line for a good recipe. I found this on-line at vegetariantimes.com/...lentil-hummus
