Happy Turnip (Parsnip, Kohlrabi and Rutabaga) Day

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.
