CATALINA, NL— It’s a har­vest that’s been catch­ing a lot of at­ten­tion.

Sherry Burry and hus­band Joe of Catalina har­vested this 21pound turnip Tues­day, Oct. 24.

The Bur­rys have a prac­ti­cal use for the turnip – it is be­ing re­served for Christ­mas day din­ner.

The cou­ple also grows pota­toes, car­rot, cab­bage, zuc­chini, kale, spinach, let­tuce, pep­pers, cu­cum­ber, peas, mint, Swiss chard and more, and have been gardening for over five years now.
