|I have beets sprouting but they don't look strong enough to transplant. When is the best time to transplant them? I'm thinking of moving to pot before outside until it gets warmer.

|When your seedlings have developed 3 sets of true leaves they should be hardy enough to transplant. Handle them by the leaves when you move them, not the stems. If you accidentally crush a stem the seedling will die but if you accidentally crush a leaf, new leaves will grow. Best wishes with your beets.
