Winter Veggies

We had a fairly nice day today so I decided to see if there were any vegetables left in my garden. I was happy to find these turnip greens and kale.

Also found a few green onions. We had freezing weather down to the teens so I was surprised they survived.

These turnips are quite small but I was happy to get them. After peeling the larger ones, I decided to try the "hot water to cook the skins off" technique. I didn't take any pictures but it worked great. Even for the smallest ( 1/2 inch ). I'll be using that for all my turnips from now on. Less waste than peeling. Just like peeling tomatoes.
