Don't know if the last gardening thread has expired, but this is gardening time. I've been busy canning, grating and drying, and generally getting ready for the shift from summer crops to fall ones.
I have my own garden. There is a community one nearby, but for some reason they don't allow brassicas, which doesn't work for me, because that is what my garden tends to grow best.
It must be the first warning of frost tonight that has me thinking of fall vegetables, in particular turnips. Of course if you only get yours from the store you only know the bitter kind, and aren't familiar with how sweet and tasty they can be when they first come out of the ground - especially after a good frost.
Here's a great recipe - heaven and earth. The version I learned also had parsley on top of the root vegetables, and under the applesauce (that would be the lawn in between the heaven (apples) and the earth (turnips and potatoes). You can also add salt, pepper, cinnamon, and allspice.
Of course you can easily substitute carrots in with your potatoes, or just have potatoes if you have a tender palate and aren't used to the more robust flavour of turnips.
