Swede ready in July!?

Wow! I only sowed these in late March and yet they have grown to grapefruit size already! The bed is only a 4ft square, but supports at least 30 plants – that’s lots of Sunday lunches covered.

We have eaten a couple which needed to be removed to give the others space and they were very good. I think of swede as a winter vegetable and had planted these with that in mind. I wonder if they will still be good come Christmas, or if they will have gone woody?

Update January 2011 – This bed of swedes provided us with Sunday veg throughout the autumn and winter and they have not gone woody at all! Swede has to be one of the easiest vegetables to grow – if you have not tried them, give them a go!
