“Draw things that have some meaning to you. An apple, what does it mean? The object drawn doesn’t matter so much. It’s what you feel about it, what it means to you. A masterpiece could be made of a dish of turnips.”

~ Sherwood Anderson

We first tried Hakurei turnip (informally known as a salad turnip) last year when I purchased a few from the local farmers market. They were an immediate favourite so I decided to grow some of my own this year. They’ve done well and I’ve got successive plantings in the ground in both gardens.

Today I have some garden work to tend to, my camera is calling my name, and we’re looking forward to an afternoon visit with family.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
