    It appears to me that your turnips have gone to seed, but it’s been so long since I’ve seen them it up close that I may have the variety of greens wrong.

  2. LaurieBluedorn Says:

    No, it’s not turnips.

  3. Kristin Carr Says:

    Just a guess….are they brussels sprouts?

  4. Kristen B. Says:

    Is it spinach that is in the bowls?
    Unfortunately I don’t now much about gardening so I can’t tell what’s growing. :P

  5. Laurie Bluedorn Says:

    Yes, it’s spinach in the bowls, but what is the significance of the first picture?

  6. Kristin Carr Says:

    I can understand why nobody likes spinach! :-P

    Hello Laurie:

    I remember that you mentioned that when the spinach develop those “flowers” we can ‎not eat them, but why? I did not found an explanation‎.

  8. Laurie Bluedorn Says:

    That’s right. Once spinach goes to seed (makes flowers) then you can’t eat it any more. It doesn’t taste good. Everybody here (except me) is happy when the spinach goes to seed. : )

    I get it now. (Learned something today about gardening!! Thanks. :D )

  10. Kristin Carr Says:

    Never would have guessed it… :-D

  11. LaurieBluedorn Says:

    I’ll replant it if you like.

    They don’t even like it fresh in salads? Or chopped up in baked pasta or pizza? That just makes me sad.
