Here's to our friends, the root vegetables. I'm cheering on turnips, parsnips, kohlrabi and rutabagas. Hurray for them all! Penniwig suggested adding "the brave and tenderhearted kohlrabi," and I am happy to do so. I did a little Internet sleuthing and found that kohlrabi is also known as "German turnip" as well as turnip cabbage, so it is a perfect fit for this holiday. My mother was a great kohlrabi fan and planted it in her garden for a number of years, so I have much fondness for this little known vegetable.
Once again, a cheer for turnips and veggie friends and for all friends of veggies and visitors to Buttercupland! Please stop by often.
