Yep - live turnips it was - and surprisingly accurately, all things considered.

i'd just like to point out that a treb' is a very accurate seige weapon, and turnips are a perfect shape for holding there flight path. Also scrap is the best thing to make anything out of coz if it don't work you just blame it on the materials you used.

An even better example was on "secrets of lost empires" Where they discovered that a decent-sized piano could be launched with no less difficulty had it been a turnip. They also realized that if wheel are added to the bottom...
-It fires furhter, due to the follow-through
-It doesn't teeter, and fall over
