Growing Rutabaga, also Swedes

Swedes actually freeze long term pretty good, if you cook them and mash them up the same way you would to serve them, and then stick the mash in plastic bags and stick them in the deep freeze. The frozen mash lasts for months, and you just whip out a bag when you want a side dish of mashed swedes and let it defrost, and off you go! No difference in taste or texture at all.
