Sweet turnips, Leeks and Winter Squash

Sweet turnips.  We have an unusual field of  turnips.  Over on the old farm I have a few acres of ground that was rough and hard to mow where I had stored slab-wood and logs years ago.  I intended to seed it down to be a hayfield so I plowed it  last fall but then was busy on other parts of the farm  so we did not get back to finish smoothing and seeding it this spring and a thick cover of weeds grew up. In August we picked stones and harrowed it after which more weeds came up. I was very surprised when  a few weeks ago I walked into that patch- It has thousands of perfect turnips in it- they are just the right size with almost no worm damage and nicer than any of the four other patches of turnips that I planted and cared for! How could this be?  It appears that some of the weeds must have been turnips that flowered and made seed. 

These turnips are exceptionally sweet.

 We are planning to be open with normal summer hours (Mon-Sat 10 am-6 pm) till the day before Thanksgiving.  For the late fall period the plan is to be open every Friday afternoon from 2 pm- 6 pm and Saturdays from 10 am -4 pm between Nov 30 and Dec 22. For the rest of the winter we will open for 2-3 day periods every few weeks when the weather is reasonable and we are available. We will post these open days on face book and on our front door and of course I will also tell about them here on the newsletter. In the spring, summer hours will start again when the asparagus comes up which is in the very early part of May. Daniel
