Turnip harvest

Here is our very first turnip harvest. We've not grown them before. I pulled them when they were quite small, around 5cm diameter, this plateful was 300g worth. The variety is Tokyo White Cross F1. Strangely they seemed to be growing on top rather than under the soil, I'm not sure if this is normal, or maybe I made some mistake in planting. The other variety I have growing, Milan White Red Top, seems to be growing under the soil as one would expect. Anyhow they tasted just fine, peeled, quartered, fried in oil and then added to a goat curry that I made in the slow cooker.
