Beetroot seeds are a traditional food item in India. They were known to the ancient Indians as "Paneer" or "Bitter Gourd". The Indians of southwestern United States to use and enjoy beetroot as a vegetable with recipes calling for it as a constituent of a popular dip. In this article I present some interesting uses of beetroot seeds and recipes that include it in a tasty and nutritious beetroot soup.
Beetroot seeds were among the first foods planted by the aborigines of Australia. They consumed the whole plants and added the boiled earthworms which died after a day of hard work. These earthworms, which became known as beetroot, were so plentiful that the village had to be supplied with them so that there could be fresh meat throughout the year. Beetroot is so nutritious that these first settlers began to cultivate it not only for its flesh but for the edible seeds as well. It was only when introduced to colder climates that their taste became less savory and their plant became popular all over the world. They are now cultivated by many people all around the world and are even used in preparing high-quality alcoholic drinks.
In order to get the most out of their plants, however, it is important that they be sown in the soil where they will later be grown. If the beetroot seeds are sown in the wrong place, the plants will be infested with a wide array of soil borne diseases. This includes the familiar weedy root or fungus that attacks potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, melons and peppers. Before planting, make sure to ensure that you have the best quality soil in your garden and that it is not sown in an area that will most likely be infested with these soil borne pathogens.
The most important equipment needed when sowing beetroot is a large round veggie hoe, sometimes known as a garden fork. To sow your beetroot seeds properly, you must use a hoe which has been designed for sowing seedlings. Some of the larger, more expensive vegetable garden tools are also available; these include pestles and revolving garden spades.
Once you have your veggie hoe and seed drills in place, the next step is to lay down one emerald or pearl-shaped piece of cut grass over each row. This grass will act as a backdrop to the vegetables that you wish to grow. Remember to space the emeralds or pearl shaped grasses at least one foot between each other so that the seedlings have room to grow.
Make sure that the holes you dig for your Beetroot seeds are just deep enough to allow the roots to penetrate easily. The holes should also drain properly so that moisture doesn't dry up inside them. While the seeds are still in the ground, make a start of piling up as much wood and leaves as you can find, and cover the entire bottom of your hole. When your plants get ready to sprout, they will need somewhere to get water from. Make sure that they are well protected in this way, while you wait for your Beetroot crops to come up.
When your crops have grown to about two to three inches tall, they are ready for planting in the spring. The two things you want to remember when sowing in Survival mode is that you should always plant your beans close to each other, so that they don't end up spreading out too far. You also need to make sure that you are spacing them wide enough that they can all get the sunlight they need. While you're planting your Beetroot seeds, don't forget the three jars your Survival mode crops came in. Put one inside the other, and this will serve as a backup for your main plantings.
When your Beetroot seeds start to germinate, you can put the food item(s) that you're going to sell in the jars that you placed in your survival mode's ground. When the spores hit the air and begin to germinate, the wind will blow the spores into your crafting table, where your buyers will be able to pick them up. Once the spores hit the ground again, your buyers can dig them up and sell the pieces to your fellow farmers. With this easy process, your Beetroot seeds will be on their way to making you some fast money!
