Awwww........ baby turnips, delicious as they are cute.

My back yard is a turnip farm.

In the excitement of Autumn plantings, I put in two packets of turnip seeds, early purple and swedes. That resulted in about 600 seedlings in the two seed trays.

It surprized me to find that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for turnips. I managed to find homes for about seventeen of them.

Being of a frugal nature, I just couldn't throw them away. As there are so many of them, we have made an early start on eating them. Fabulous, roasted, in stir fries, mashed in with the potatoes......
These are the early purples, the swedes are not quite ready yet.
