  1. Thank you, I never realised that mangelwurzles were similar to the field beet that were regularly grown around us in the fields in Yorkshire. They were fed to the sheep over winter, the sheep seemed to enjoy them. I notice the sunshine in your photo, another sunny day tomorrow!

  2. Weirdest thing is, mangelwurzel is German and literally means shortage-root. Maybe it was nicknamed thus, because it had to stand in as food during times of famine. The plants name in German today is Runkelrübe.
