Weeding the garden yesterday I noticed a few purple shoulders under the prickly leaves, so I pulled some Turnips. My first ever. They seem to have done well in spite of the foliage riddled with bug-holes. I proudly showed them to my husband and he was duly impressed, even though he didn't recognize what they were. We don't really eat turnips much in this house, but I tried a few recipes out on my family before planting them, and hope to find more we like!
