The best!  My Mom used to grow red potatoes in our backyard when I was a kid, in Idaho and contrary to popular belief not everyone grows potatoes in Idaho, and I would go dig them up and cook them right away!  One of the best food memories I have!!!!  Great looking crop Hugo :)

Thanks Christy! Some of those potatoes were so tiny (the size of a marble) but I couldn't bring myself to leave them in the ground! Every little guy is worth harvesting! Now if I can just find some decent recipes for turnips.

I hear ya, even the smallest of potatoes from your own sweat and 'tears' has to be eaten!  Check out this site for an awesome variety of turnip recipes.  It is a great site because it gathers recipes from all over the internet from blogs to sites that just do recipes.  I hope that helps you find some unique and fun uses for your turnips and other abundances of veggies you may have!  http://punchfork.com/recipes/turnips  

Happy gardening and of course cooking!
