The Beet Goes On, The Beat Goes On

Beta vulgaris.

These are beets in all their fresh glory, photographed this weekend at my favorite market. Beautiful, often underconsidered.

"The beet has a long history of cultivation stretching back to the second millennium BC." (why we know this is true)


Before Cher.

Before Cher retired.

Before Cher returned having never retired.

Before Cher?

Beta rocknrollus.

Sonny and Cher... fans of beets?
