Not much weather we’re having lately. I appreciate the warmer Winter and I’m looking forward to Spring and the planting season.

A while back, I was asked about joining in a project to grow a garden for Winslow Meals. We would grow some things that aren’t (generously) donated. Meals gets delicious veggies that are donated from people like Richard Price. He gave us bunches of turnips! Lots of folks have taken them home to cook and we’re looking for more ways to cook and serve them for lunch. Turnip sundaes anyone? They’re delicious boiled but let me know if you have a good recipe.

Anyway. .. the garden. Rebecca at Folkways is letting use some land to build a garden. We are getting some materials donated and have some┬ádedicated volunteers. With gardening advice from the aforementioned Mr. Price, I think we’ll be very successful. Hopefully, this will be the first of many “Meals Gardens.”

Fleeta Clark celebrated (we all celebrated) her 94th birthday! She is wintering and doing physical therapy at her daughter Muriel’s home in Fayetteville, but visits Winslow frequently. We’re always happy to see her.

    Roast em! It brings out the sweetness in them and even turnip haters will be amazed. Rub them in olive oil, roast in a 400 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes. Easy and tasty!
