Root of the Matter

Fall gardening continues to confound me. In addition to having less time for the garden (no hours of post-work sunlight), there is travel, weird weather, and the general fact that I have never got the seed sowing timing right for fall. Nonetheless, I've got a good crop of greens growing, but this post is about roots.
For some reason, I planted a ton of radishes, some of which are now spongy/woody, and not nearly enough of these gorgeous pink turnips. The beets were either devoured or did not germinate.
I like radishes, but I'll never eat all these in time. Pickles to the rescue!


I hope your fall garden is doing well!
