neep

Nipped down the allotment this evening and couldn’t resist sampling one of these — now, no laughing, please — for this tiny neep fills me with an immense happiness. It is the first thing to come out of the ground that I have grown from seed on our allotment, and I am very proud of it. Just look at it! I love little tasty turnips, and am all too apt to drift into Cobbett-like rhapsodies about them . . .but I shall resist this here and just mention that this particular neep was gleefully incorporated into tonight’s vegetable stir fry supper and it was exceptionally, wonderfully turnippy.

  1. Miniature food is extra tasty, isn’t it?

    Yo–I voted for you and am certain that you will win the egg cup because I have bizarro premonitions about such things. And when you do, please knit a tiny egg cozy for it…

  2. I love turnips! Our local farmer (yes, we have a couple in the Arizona desert) grows a variety of delicious turnips and radishes which we eat sliced raw in salads. And the turnip greens are edible (and yummy), too.

    off topic, but i wanted to add this link to your list of british wool people. this is a permaculture woman who is trying to avoid selling her wool to the wool board, and went to france to learn to make duvets of her wool. got a grant for wool use studies, etc. interesting.
