Say folks, are you looking for a trustworthy turnip? Introducing: The Hobo Turnip!
Since these turnips keep well while tramping around they became popular with hobos who could make many good meals with each one. Still today, tramps trot around with these turnips tied to sticks.
The Hobo Turnip has an impatient-sorta way of sitting on the soil rather than settling down into it. This seems to suggest a certain restlessness, like it is some rootless vagrant that moves along with the winds of opportunity. In a sense, these turnips have become like their hobo friends, never to put down roots.
