  • It looks like this late turnip crop is going to be an exceptional one.  
    I will likely have some ready to harvest in honor of Halloween this year, too, which is quite apropos.
    What does the turnip have to do with Halloween you may ask? Well, they just may be more authentic than that pumpkin on the porch.  
    The pumpkins have been for sale for weeks and children have decided on costumes, but somewhere in the middle of it all is the story of All Hallow’s Eve.
