Minnehaha Falls was such a fun place to visit as it was right in the middle of the city, and the charisma of the untamed water flowed freely in the surrounding concrete jungle. Needless to say the snow decoration was simply breathtaking, something one would only see in the north.

I just love turnips. I know for most of you turnips are just that ubiquitous fixture in the produce section you'll never consider taking home. I was once like you. But I'm grateful I finally learned better.
Turnips are surprisingly versatile, able to be incorporated into most any style of cuisine (Chinese, Mexican, Ethiopian, Indian, Italian, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Trinidadian, you name it). The flavor can be too strong and cabbagy for some people (it is a close cabbage cousin, after all), but cooking longer tempers it, and turnip flesh also readily takes up other flavors, as long as it's cooked plenty.
They make great pickles (and quickles!), sauerkraut, or kimchi, though my favorite way is the same for pretty much every vegetable: steamed, buttered, salted. The leaves are also edible and delicious, and one of our signature seeds -- the 'Deitrich's Wild Broccoli Raab' -- is a feral turnip that makes the first green food for us here in Jersey every spring.
And, in a pinch, turnips make pretty good french fries.
Random turnip trivia: Before pumpkins crossed the Atlantic, people in Britain supposedly carved jack-o'-lanterns from turnips. (Believe it.) These are a few random turnips from the 'Six Root Grex' turnip population Dusty grew out in Minnesota which we will be selling this coming year for the first time. The legendary Dr. Alan "Mushroom" Kapuler of Corvallis, Oregon, founder of Peace Seeds, introduced this "interbreeding mix" years ago, selected for organic production, which he started with six cultivars chosen for their tasty leaves & roots. It's an excellent starting point if you want to breed the perfect turnip for your bioregion -- or just keep it as a hyper-resilient and diverse population. Either way, well worth growing.

Tonight someone took a wool Tomte ornament off the Christmas tree and destroyed it. That someone then proceeded to act like the floor was lava while getting reprimanded, hopping back and forth between the furniture and a rug without touching any of the hardwood floor.
Do any of you know how difficult it is to be serious while the puppy you're trying to scold is being so cute and funny? Do you? It's extremely difficult. I had to leave the room so she wouldn't see me laughing at her and think it's ok to be destructive.
Well, this never posted from the middle of June! What the...?
Good memories from the 2019 season, though. Max for 3 Clutch hits including the game-tying HR (18) and a Walk-Off Hit in the bottom of the 17th inning! Now...That is MAX Kepler!!!
See Max Kepler in the Clutch....here are all 3 of his big hits from last night, which was an off-day for him. Today, he's back in the starting lineup!
Ahem! Mr. Kepler is not in the Top 9 Outfielders for the All-Star Game so....go vote for him!

We’ve all tried this hairstyle at least once, right??? 😁😁 Beautiful female Cardinal captured at the Landscape Arboretum in Chaska 😍 Did you know that female cardinals usually have more elaborate songs than male cardinals? 🤔
