This is a follow up to Episode-158- where I showed how I was getting my spring plantings under way. I sowed turnip and snap pea seeds on March 30 and I started picking some of the rewards of my labor for two weeks. Today’s pickings were the best so and it is nice to see 10 weeks of waiting patiently for these “early” vegetables come to a nice bounty.

The turnips were sowed too close together and although I did some thinning already some a quite small but delicious none the less. Also, they are in a spot where sunshine is limited so maybe with some more time the rest will mature just as nicely as today’s pickings. I decided the peas would be best boiled in salt water and eaten just like that. The family agreed. The turnips were cut up for use in salads I will eat all week.
