Beet can't be beat
Marlin Torseth of Hager City showed a five-and-a-half pound beet Friday he grew in his home garden. Torseth knew of no particular reason for this beet to be so large, but noted he's grown a lot of others in the pound- to pound-and-a-half range. He also grows tomatoes, squash, currants and other items in his one-eighth acre garden plot, keeping his wife busy with canning. Lately, he's experienced trouble with turkeys threatening his crops.
