Turnips turn out to be disappointment

Friday, June 3, 2011

To the Editor:

I thought that I would patronize the local growers. My experience at the Farmers Market, however, was less than something to be desired.

I purchased turnips for $2 a pound. When I got home, I had one small turnip and a top for $2. It couldn't possibly have been a pound.

I don't know if this was intentional on the part of the seller or his scales were faulty.

I don't intend to return.
