Winter Gardening: Ah Turnips!

It has been a few weeks since I visited the garden.  It looks drab, like a garden in winter, but it’s also still yielding.  I went looking to supplement my root vegetables and found that the turnip seed I planted in the fall had developed some nice looking turnips hiding under some vigorous greens.

I pulled one of them to have a look…

And took home four.  I’ve already used the greens to supplement bok choi in a stir fry…

And I plan to roast the turnips with some carrots later in the week.  I like this winter gardening, which involves a lot of rest between harvests!

  1. They look lovely! Our vegetables are currently drowning… even in the raised beds!

    They were delicious too, roasted with the carrots. Winter gardening is always a win or lose situation. If things grow and survive, great! If not, well, there’s always spring…

    We’re fortunate to have good winter gardening but I am tired of turnips this year!
