First VegBag

As promised a few pictures of my first VegBag.
The Unidentified Leafy Green.
Celery! I love celery.
Unfortunately this is all I had left when I removed the bad stalks and the parts of the mostly good stalks that weren't so good anymore. It's not celery season here apparently.
My root veggies. A rutabaga...I think (I have no idea what I'm going to do with this), 3 potatoes, 2 1/2 carrots, a parsnip, and three turnips...I think.
They were quite dirty so I used my amazing vegetable scrub brush. I have a peeler that works in the same fashion. Put it on my finger. Such a great thing.
There they are, squeaky clean. Those are turnips right?
The newly clean roots and my bell peppers (which have a surprising bite to them) and my onions.

So that's the VegBag. I did cook a little of the Unidentified Leafy Green and it's pretty good. I just wish I knew what it was. And if any of you can correct any of my roots that would be great. I'm afraid Root knowledge is carrots, parsnips, and potatoes (including sweet potatoes).


  1. I'm pretty sure your purple thing is a Kohl Rabi... And that's the only thing I can identify... The long white thing might be an icicle radish... And the dark purple things look more like beets than turnips.

  2. beets! That's what they are. I know the long, white thing is a parsnip as it's a big food here (nippers is what they called mashed parsnips and they're delishious) so I do know that one. :) But yes, beets! I don't know why I didn't think of that.

  3. Looks like soup to me... just add barley.
