Mangel worzel

I have finished my "work week" for now, and so I have been out to see how the garden has fared.  It has been raining intermittently (three times the usual March rainfall for us) and so the garden is growing well.   So are the weeds.   I have weeded the baby vegetable patches.

This a healthy young mangel worzel plant....
 ... and the jalapenos are flowering as if their lives depended upon it...
and so we can expect many more spicy little peppers.

Bless you for starring the unsung mangelwurzel, which should have an opera created for it, or at least a pastoral. After all, gourmets in the field have ruminated on its music (even good in rehashed remix) for hundreds of years.
