    Have a large surplus of one of the most uncharismatic of vegetables – the humble turnip – and have pulled the remainder of a row of these out, to encourage a struggling row of parsnips which they were smothering. The prospect of steamed or braised turnips at every meal does much to smother appetite – but I have found this recipe which sounds OK. Will be trying it tonight – think there must be a good reason why nobody makes turnip soup.

    • We use them instead of swede when we have them Sheila, The skillet I am trying this year for the first time, is about five foot high and in flower, Good job I planted it at the back of the garden.

    • I’m sure you could blanch and freeze them Sheila? Or store in slightly damp sand?
