Chioggea beet "looks like a lady"

This little bedraggled girl is what's left of a striped (Chioggea) beet I had for lunch. She's supported in a glass bottle by a wooden skewer. OK, she's a little wilted, but this was the most exciting natural thing I encountered today. It was the first beet I harvested and when I cut into it, I realized it was an heirloom, striped variety. Absolutely gorgeous inside. And here "she" is in a salad.
