Supervising (leading by example) the removal of topsoil from some yellow turnips by dry brushing with a fine tampico brush. Soil is being added to our potted chive plants. Washing tampico brushes and sharpening a couple of cook's knives.

Are "yellow turnips" the same as rutabagas? I love rutabagas, just chopped and boiled, served with butter....or mashed into mashed potatoes.

Wifey says they're the same. She'll be mashing them and we'll be eating with some butter and S&P. We got fresh unwaxed ones from our local CSA.
Think they may also be called Swedes.

Speaking of dw40, I have to hit the bathroom door with some. It's has been squeakin' horrible and woke me up around 1 am. It would be a great sound effect for a scary movie.
