Turnips held all winter in the ground under hoop houses. Roasted with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, the flavor is extraordinary. They are now Chris's favorite, and he never liked turnips before tasting these. Wintering over considerably improved the flavor.
Chris built this cold frame using scrap wood, greenhouse plastic and four storm windows we picked up at a yard sale for a few bucks. We added solar collectors (a fancy way of saying plastic water jugs filled with water and spray painted black) to hold in the heat. We also insulated the coldframe with wool.
