Seedstart and germination

I have had really great success with this seed order (eighteen items), as is usually the case with your seeds. After "100 % germination," the plants are potted in the greenhouse waiting for the passage of the last predicted frost. Thank-you for all that you do . [As an aside, thanks to my grandfather and mentor, I have been gardening since 1955, you are all very much appreciated.]

Topper Turnip

This is my 2nd year growing Topper Turnips and both years have been great for this plant! The greens are not only beautiful in the garden but on the plate and taste buds as well. I just LOVE these greens they are easy to grow, harvest, cook and they can beautifully! If you love turnip greens than these are going to become a favorite for you, don't miss out, buy a package or three you won't regret growing them. They would be great in a child's garden too.

An amazing little turnip!

I have to say that i wasn't sure what to expect from these, i have never tried growing a variety that was created specifically for the leafy tops, but i sure wasn't disappointed! They shot up like a rocket even despite our unexpected and persistent heat wave, where it normally should be in the 70's, its been in the high 80's and 90's, but these little wonders still are powering right through it! And let's not forget those leaves, gosh they are huge! All of us here at our home agree that they are the best tasting greens of any other turnip we have grown, we have already harvested the leaves twice from them for cooked greens to serve for dinner, and they just keep right on springing back up!
