This beetroot survived the extreme frosts and has grown very well with mostly top leaves and the beetroot under ground is NOT maturing. I am feeding once a week with tomatoe feed. for the past 4 weeks. will i continue in this fashion or clear them all out as a lost cause.

That beetroot will soon flower and go to seed.

Beetroot is ready for use in about 10 to 12 weeks from sowing, spring for summer, summer for autumn.

Also it is an outdoor crop, no need to grow in a tunnel. More at:
