We ♡ Turnip!

And here I always thought I hated it!

I guess what I really, really dislike is rutabagas... and where we came from they called them turnip and everybody loved them - except me.

In the seed catalogs the REAL turnips looked very attractive and edible so I planted an experiment and we found out we enjoy these salad turnips.They don't even resemble those pungent yellow root veggies of my horrified memory.

They are so yummy they aren't quite as big as they could be and they aren't quite making it to the salad bowl. People are just chowing them leaves and all right in the garden after a quick rinse of the hose.

fyi: This would be a pic before the quick rinse of the hose.
It's a new garden staple. They are as easy to grow as radishes but tastier.
