The voyages of Turnip the Red

Howdy! It's Aunt Agnes here and I'm as happy as Bill Clinton with a properly cured cigar!

LOOKS A BIT LIKE A DOG-END
HERSELF, DOES SHE NOT?

We told yew all earlier that we'd be keepin' an eye on some new veggies this year and one of them veggies were gonna be red turnips. They's spose'd to look like this here:


lI'L BITTY FELLERS, AIN'T THEY?

But ours are still growing, greens only 9 -10 inches so far but they's doin' good. Ours look like yonder:


 RIGHT HANDSOME AIN'T THEY IF A MITE SCRAWNY


They's jist fixin' to ball up and that means we have to thin them but we's waitin' on that t'il the last minute so we can sample a pot o' red beet greens, we bet they's good.

We only put in a few because they grow best as a fall crop but it's enough to tell yew all about.

Thanks for stoppin' by and check back soon for more info on the continuing voyage of Turnip the Red!

So, you like turnips except the yellow ones?

Glory, the only turnips we really care for are the 'Swede' turnips, which are rutabagas, which are 'orange-yellow'.... The white ones with the purple tops are terrible. We're trying out the Boule d'Or this year, which are yellow, --and great tasting, recommended by Mac and Aggie here at the shed!
