My turnips have gone to seed - Post 2!
On 24th of June I wrote a post about my turnips going to seed. I had two options, eat the flowers a la broccoli style (or in a raw salad style) but partly through laziness and partly through curiosity I allowed them to go fully to seed. I knew from last year that radishes make wonderful seed pods.
Yesterday, I tasted some seed pods and they taste like fresh baby turnips - I will definitely be adding these to my fresh salads. However, don't leave them on the plant too long or they can go a bit bitter.
