Residents rediscover edible roots
Beets full of vitamins, few calories
Billy and Latrelle Thomas pick beets in their garden Monday morning at their North Hall County home. The Thomases sell some of their vegetables at the Hall County Farmer’s Market. The couple sold out all of their beets in the first hour of the market Saturday.
By eight o’clock Saturday morning, Bill and Latrelle Thomas had already sold all of their beets. While area farmers’ markets have had a slow start this year “on account of the weather,” Billy Thomas said beets are getting a bit more attention than they have in the past. The couple tend a large garden at their North Hall County home where they grow fresh flowers, onions, potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, beans, okra and squash.
