When is it time to harvest swede. They look ready to pull up the leaves are huge!! When we have got them up do we store them like the potatoes, in a cool dark place?

Many thanks.

    I would lift them and use them as you need them.  They'll be fine left in the ground until Christmas. 

    Do you like Clapshot? It's my favourite way of eating swede.  (I know the recipe says use turnip, but that's what the Scots  call swedes image)
