Sugar Beets

One of the many veggies growing in our garden for fall harvest is the sugar beet. Another name is the mangel used for feeding livestock and for making sugar. These beets are white and can reach an average weight of 5 lbs. Along with beets we have turnips growing also. We plan to feed the pigs most of the roots crops but sweet young turnips are tasty.

  1. Tari,

    There is a lot of talk in old farming books about Mangels. I've never tried them. Love to know how they turn out.
