Turnips & Autumn Planting

Hooray! We finally got some rain! It's been nearly six weeks, and with the soaring temperatures (in the 90s), the world was in desperate need of water.  With the rain came cooler temperatures, and I took this as my cue to get out and do some serious harvesting and autumn planting.  Though I only got two rows of beets planted before I was completely drenched from the rain, I did pull up every single last turnip to go into the stock pot for fermenting.
I'll be tackling this monster pile of turnips tomorrow.

Here are a couple of photos of "highlight" turnips that I pulled up -- they're monsters! 

check out that taproot! 

Hopefully the rain keeps coming!
