Root vegetables can be intimidating. What exactly can you do with a turnip or a beet? Amie has the answer: combine them! And add sweet potatoes, beet stems, and carrots, roast them in the oven, and wrap them all in a blanched, bright green Swiss chard leaf. Beautiful, healthy, and delicious, and almost completely from your own 1/4 acre. This fall, everything, even the sweet potatoes, will come from the farm.
