Skirret shoots

I moved a skirret/sukkerrot (meaning sugar root) root into the cellar, planning to eat them….they went missing until I noticed the characteristic edible blanched shoots this morning! The roots had been like this exposed to the air all winter (I’ve previously lost roots when overwintered in a bucket in soil (they don’t like it damp it seems). See my book Around the World in 80 plants for more… :)
And it’s a beautiful day, but a night frost…
