The turnip and swede harvest is in now,   we grew a great crop of Petrowski turnips.  These are being packed in sacks of damp sawdust and stored overwinter; they'll  be planted out again next spring to flower and set seed.

We grew vast quantities - had to get the trailer  to collect them all. But it is good as we can be really picky as to size, shape etc when choosing which ones to keep for seed.
