Turnips

I sowed my turnips, three varieties Milan purple, snowball and petrowsky. They seemed to sprout within only a few day. Now I look at the rows and realise I may have been a bit enthusiastic with the seed, I'm not good at sowing thinly. I expect some attrition to flee beetle.
Thanks for the tip about mooli Vinny, I believe I have some freebie seeds of them, might give it a try.
I'm not aging, I just need re-potting.

They don't mind being planted close together, I've been growing in clumps of 4, about 6 inches apart. Harvest the bigger ones first and let the rest fatten up.

I've harvested my first ever two (perhaps the only two) turnips, cooked them simply tonight and I've decided they will be on the growing list next year. I sowed them far too thickly then neglected them, so I'm surprised I got any at all. Both Paul and I liked the taste so they'll be a good choice for next season.
