My brother-in-law “threw out some turnip seeds to see what would happen.” The result was astonishingly large turnips, which he just left in the field after eating a few.
We gleaned a lot of them. They are sweet when raw and extremely tasty when cooked. We stored several boxes in the cellar, but also decided to can up lots of them. It took 2 days with 2 canners (as one was cooling down the other was heating up)
and we netted 43 quarts of processed turnips.
I think we are good for now.
