Ljungdalen. The breeding selection sorted by size.

A few nice turnips was rejected, because of attacks from a smallish slug. They might be especially tasty for slugs, and they are not likely to get through the winter.

Sometimes I have left the turnip Svedjeroe unprotected in open ground. But these Ljungdalen turnips are intended for breeding, so most of them should make it through the winter. I’ve planted them a bit deeper, the neck in the surface of the soil. Then I’ve covered with dry bean tops and covered with a tarp in a steel cage. Now I hope it’s suitable protection. I might have to open the tent in mild periods.
