I was so excited... while looking at our garden this afternoon, after the much needed rain last night, I noticed something...purple ?????
Yes, it is our very first turnip!!!!
I brought it right in to show to Cliff
just like an excited child!!!
We saw the movie, War Horse , and they planted a huge field of turnips in very rocky land. If you saw it, you know what an act of love it was to plow up the field and then hope the crop would grow.
I came home and decided to plant turnips too.
We do not really like turnip greens, which is a true Southern
dish, but roasted turnips with other root vegetables has become one
of our favorites.
Well, this is just one and the others are not ready yet, so I think I will slice this one up and serve on a salad (lettuce also from our little garden)
"Bon Appetit" all,
