I am growing vegetables in my garden that I can harvest in the fall and winter. These rutabagas were planted on July 20, 2012. They will be ready to pull around November 1. I have a recipe for rutabagas au gratin in my soon to be published cookbook: Dad's Home Cooking, Traditional Recipes for Preparing Healthy Family Meals. This recipe is a delicious way to serve rutabagas. This raised bed also has red beets (lower right corner of photo) and turnips (upper right corner of photo under row cover) that were also planted at the same time. The row cover over the turnips is to keep the root maggots (they love turnips) out of the turnips.
