25 Cents

He scooped them into a tiny sack
and said "is that all you want?"
Yes, just a few seeds to sprinkle
among the greens.


Liking only 1 or 2 sliced among a handful of greens
for one.

They have been producing for weeks
and this December morning my supply
is more then I can use....

On next trip to town will take them to someone who
likes Turnips....

25 cents produced these beauties? I'll bet there was some Ernestine magic added to the soil as well.

I really do like turnips, but since no one else in the family does, I rarely get to eat them. They are such a pretty vegetable!

Kaveri, just tossed the seeds out in August. Charlotte, I only like
them from my garden :)

What beautiful color this time of year. I was going through recipes and found one that calls for turnip, which I haven't cooked with before. Now I will have to give this new-to-me vegetable a try.

Sharon, for years never ate these
as I do not like in the store.
But growing my own
they are good and how organic can you get :)

What luscious-looking turnips. I love their color. Haven't had any in a while, but this makes me want to buy some. How lovely these were plucked from your garden!
