Turnips for Coy’s Christmas

-A A +A

    Victor Coy of Shepherdsville received an unusual Christmas gift this season.

    Coy grew a bumper crop of turnips at the old Allen Coy Farm along Mt. Elmira Road.

    The largest turnip weighed in at an incredible nine pounds. Coy also found turnips at right, five and four pounds.

    “We had that bad dry spell, so I watered them down really well,” Coy said. Then the rain took over.”

    Coy said the size of the turnips did not affect their taste, and if anything enhanced it.

    “If it starts to wilt, I’ll cut her up and eat her,” he said. “It’s good eatin’.”
