I picked my beets too early and they are the size of a big marble. Can I put them back in the ground?

Good Morning,

My name is Samantha. Unfortunately, replanting picked vegetables very rarely works. If you haven't cleaned them or scrubbed off the hair roots, you can certainly try. Most of the time they will rot after putting them back into the ground, so it might be best to enjoy them in their small form!

Good luck!
