Fodder beets first appeared in Germany’s Lower Rhineland around 1561.  Sugar beet was developed in Upper Silesia (Poland) in the 1740s.  Grows wild in western Europe and Mediterranean and may have been grown around 2000 BC by the Celts. Plant into the garden as soon as you can work the soil.  Requires potassium so this is one place you can use up some of your wood ash when you add compost in the spring.  Young greens  are good in salads, too.   If you have trouble with getting all your beets to germinate, try breaking the outside husk, use a rolling pin or garden tool handle.
