Turnips and Rutabagas


Turnips and rutabagas are well known by all and liked by both animals and people. Turnips are a very important vegetable for animal food and soil building. They grow as a root crop as well as for turnip greens. They have a knack for tolerating almost anything from poor soil to lack of water. They are quick growing--about 30 days for baby size, to 60 days depending on the size of bulbs you want. Turnip greens are highly prized in many places in the world--including the south eastern United States. Some folks plant some just for the deer and cows to eat. We plant them at the ends of our fields so the the deer stop there. And as they grow bigger, they will break up the soil. We have White Purple Top turnips which are great for greens, the Golden turnips are wonderful for baking, and the White Japanese turnips are good for salads and greens. Gardeners of all levels can grow this famous heirloom garden treat. All our seeds are Heirloom and Non-GMO. Happy growing!!!
