This has been a super cold, rainy Spring. My weeds are four feet tall, and my spinach won’t grow. Oh, and my broccoli BOLTED. Life’s not fair in the garden sometimes.
I harvested my spring crop of turnips. Actually, I noticed they’d made an impenetrable thicket so I started to thin out the largest turnips…and then went King Kong on them and uprooted the entire patch. It’s easier this way.
I quartered the roots and sauteed them in butter, then threw in the green with more butter, salt, garlic, pepper, and a bit of water and let them steam a bit. A little sugar and apple cider vinegar finished them off nicely, and they were fantastic on top of whole wheat pasta with feta cheese.
