Check out this humongous beetroot I picked today!

It weighs 2.2 kg but because my kitchen scales would only go up to 2 kg I had to cut it in half to get the exact weight :)

What the hell?
What special plutonium based fertilizer was used here?

That's awesome Mark.
The question I'd like to ask is, will it taste like an old tree stump or will you donate it to the local athletics club as a shot-put?

Answers: Yes & No :D

When I was weeding my patch I found this stray beetroot (when it was small) so I transplanted it on it's own into a bed I had recently dressed with horse manure and blood & bone. From there, it never looked back! I do remember sprinkling it with some compost bucket juice so could that have been the difference? The rest of my beet crop (in a separate bed) all grew well but to normal size.
