Turnips

Postby Bob Perry » Thu Dec 20, 2012 9:13 am

Around here the Macomber Turnip is a favorite. It's a white turnip that was developed in the next town over (Westport). Growers are not always real excited about distributing seed, but one owed me a favor and I negotiated 2 plants so I can get me some seed. Well yesterday he delivered 60 so now they're all transplanted into the rabbit/deer protected part of my garden today, Dec. 20th.

Funny things growing at Ft Adams, rutabagas popping up in the oddest places. I can only figure that when they hydroseeded last year after the big cutting job over the winter some seeds were in the mix???

Bob, you may want to mulch them, with some reject hay, to be sure they survive the winter, to flower,and set seed, next summer. Ed

I saw those,on the 10 cent tour. May have seeded some pasture, before the fort. Sometimes turnip is included in pasture seeding, for some winter grazing. Hope Bob keeps the goats out of the garden, this winter, or he'll be learning about that, real fast! Ed

Yep Ed, they were in the way, way back too (near housing) and some were quite huge. I don't know if they hydroseeded way back there or not, not much grass growing out there. I will check some places in the crownworks where I know they seeded.

The only time I have ever eaten turnips was up in Quebec, seems they are fond of the root crops, usually cubed with carrots and whatever is yeller. Pretty good stuff.
