    Very cold end of week. Reminds me of a few yrs ago. Beginning of November. Got down into the teens at nite. Froze all my brassica. Then it warmed after the cold snap and the turnips and radish became mush. Not good

    Turnips don’t turn to moosh. Radish will kill with hard frosts. Turnips will stay desired later on So - ur all good.

    Have to disagree. If they freeze clear through. As they did that Nov. Then it warmed to 45. Everything was stinky mush. Too early to get that cold. Now if it would stay cold. Like later on. They stay frozen. It’s alright

    Turnips best December January
    Agree. My favorite late season food source. December January let's go hunting, doesn't matter when was hit by frost/freeze.
