What are they and what do I do with them?
A member of the Brassica family, this turnip is also known as a salad turnip. It has the crisp texture of a radish, but without the bite. It is often eaten raw, but as I learned at the market last week, they are also amazing cooked as well. One of our customers mentioned that she liked to saute them for a few minutes with some butter. Once the turnips soften a bit, add the turnip greens to the heat to wilt. Towards the end of cooking, add salt and pepper to taste and the topper is to add a little honey, The results are AMAZING! I would highly recommend trying these turnips. You will not be disappointed.
Life at the Farm
Tomato plants are in the ground in our newest hoop house and they are looking great!
We single stem our tomatoes in order to fit the maximum number of plants within a minimum soil footprint.
The peonies are growing like crazy. In three weeks time, this perennial flower, have gone from barely noticeable, to almost 3 feet tall.
See you at the market!
