"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Kohlrabi, the next big thing in the garden?
The Washington Post - 12/19/2012.
By Barbara Damrosch – A kohlrabi is a strange-looking object even when it’s not the size of a soccer ball – a green or purple globe that sits just at soil level, with leaf stems protruding upward at various longitudes and latitudes on its surface.
