A miracle! Green in AZ

So it seems I DON'T kill everything my hand touches (like King Midas' touch)...just wanted to share a miracle of green even in the brown state of Arizona. This garden is actually proving to be quite therapeutic...many of you know Blake and I have been trying to start a family- I think it will be good for me to get some "relaxation" time in with the garden so as to give my body a break from all of the stress of trying to conceive, work, school, church, and of course a social life.
** Look Sarah- my turnips are growing and you'll be the first recipient once they get crunchy! :)

i've still been thinking about those turnips. honestly. i didn't think anyone ate those after the 1800's. my mind is boggled.

it literally took me 3 minutes to find the green you're speaking of in that first pic. and i still don't think i can see in the last one.

**just a little clarification for myself...i was totally thinking radish's (insert correct plural form of radish please), not turnips. i'm with sarbear. no one who is anyone and anyone who isn't no one eats turnips. you follow.

Kaylo- I'm not "anyone" so I guess I can still get phased off of turnips- so how about we have a "turnip taste testing extravaganza" since you guys are all pretending you don't like them just because people in the 1800s ate them- and it's not "fashionable" to like them in the now- capiche? Besides- radishes are too spicy/peppery for me- which is why I like the distant cousin- the turnip. Case closed.
