I like growing vegetables in fall like broccoli, carrots, cauliflowers, lettuce, onions, potatoes etc.

No that's not pressure treated wood. Tops have copper pennies around structure. Snails avoid copper. Probably why they are there. Another nice thing about growing beets is they dont require very deep raised beds. Pretty shallow root vegetable.

Thanks for this article! I'm a novice gardener. In Zone 7; beets are in my 1st batch. I'm using Earthboxes. #SoExcited
