Ode to Jack and the turnip

Jeneen Wiche

Weekend Gardener


It looks like this late turnip crop is going to be a good one thanks to cool temperatures and adequate rain fall. I may even have some little ones ready in honor of Halloween this year, too, even though they will only be salad size. What does the turnip have to do with Halloween you may ask?

Well, they just may be more authentic than that pumpkin on the porch.
