|GETTING A TAD CHILLY FOR THIS LOOK|
|THICK, LUSCIOUS YELLOW TURNIP GREENS|
You can see how densely packed the leaves are, so much so that we will be trying a pot full of yellow turnip greens tomorrow. While we don't really expect a noticeable difference in flavor from the greens of the ordinary white turnip it certainly is worth a try.
Not doing so well are the leaves of the Brussels sprouts in the foreground (flea beetles suspected). These received a good dose of pyrethrine which we expect will sort the situation out in short order.
And of course the weekly report would not be complete without a few words on every one's favorite fatty, Mr. Big, our own prized rutabaga.
|EXPANDING LIKE THE NATIONAL DEBT, MR. BIG|
Also, the woody portions may always be cut out, and if the weather conditions are optimal - and they have been - even a large rutabaga may remain tender throughout.
That about wraps up the boule and 'baga report for this week, as always thanks for visiting us here at Farm Girl's Corner!
