Turnips Update

Hakurei Turnips 1
My Hakurei turnips are starting to form bulbs. I've never tried this variety before but have read that they are super sweet when grown in cooler weather (which it has been during the past couple of weeks). They are supposedly pretty hardy as well, being able to withstand temperatures approaching freezing. Also, they are best when harvested golf ball size and can either be eaten raw or lightly cooked. The turnip greens are supposed to be delicious as well. Hopefully they will bulb up quick so I can finally taste them!
