The weekends have had nice weather lately, and I spent some time in the garden getting it ready for the growing season. Look what I found from last year! I told my wife I was cooking it for dinner just to see her face. I think I should save it for fall and carve it instead of a pumpkin for Halloween!
I enjoy growing turnips more than I enjoy eating them. They can have a strong flavor, sometimes bitter. David Bulman over at Bite Bistro suggested that I try some Tokyo turnips this year. They’re smaller than the turnips I’ve grown in the past, more like the size of a radish. They’re supposed to be sweeter when cooked, with greens that are good for eating, too. I’m looking forward to trying them–the seeds are on my order list for this year.
