    I raised about 20 bushels of turnips this year along with potatoes, onions,corn,squash,beets,chard,etc.. Was out in the garden and found one that was HUGE....7 pounds and 25 inches around! anybody else seen or have growen a turnip this big? Variety is "purple top" It was solid as a rock too. Our elevation here is 8100 feet.

    wolly moley, you must really like turnips. I've never seen one that large.
