Fantastic Friday Fact

Our garden is set out in 3 patches; roots, brassicas and other. In planting and thinking of next year’s produce we discovered that radish, turnip and swede despite the fact the part you eat is a root and are classed as root vegetables are all members of the brassica family so should be grown in that area.

In researching this fact I found out that turnip is believed to have originated as a cross between a cabbage and a swede! Who knew?!
