Ditmas Park CSA Week 20

Did I say something about missing my favorite vegetables earlier this summer? Well its all erased. I welcome this weeks turnips, sweet potatoes, squash, and parsley with open arms. This week was a really generous portion and wide variety of vegetables. I will be picking and choosing what to eat first considering what to hold on to for the future. The season is almost over, though I extended until Thanksgiving so yay for that.

I am confused about the large white root vegetable. Last week it looked like a rutabaga to me. I identify purple top and white root end with rutabagas. This week it looked more like harukei, but ah ha its a slightly purple. Not harukei. Maybe it is a rutabaga and we are calling it a turnip because they are related? These vegetables seem starchier then your average turnips. Let me know what you think, especially if you are in my CSA.
