In 1829, Nantucket's William Rawson raised a turnip that weighed over 11 pounds.*

On the one hand, you gotta admit, that's a really big turnip.

On the other...I think this dude might need a more social hobby.

Pfft. Turnips are easy. Try growing an 11 pound CARROT in New England, ya pussy.

Dude, I can't get ivy to grow in my apartment. I think I need you to come make my place plant-friendly.

Unfortunately, I've only had good luck with root crops. But my husband would know what kind of plant would be good for your space! Perhaps a philodendron. They are hardy and reputed to clean the air.
