Label for Pioneer Portraits exhibition 2011:
It has frequently been said that the high lands above Blenheim were too dry to grow anything. How absurd this idea is may be seen by calling in at Mr. Adam Jackson's farm, near Renwick, who has got a fine crop of Mangold Wurtzel. A specimen root lies at the Express Office for the inspection of the curious. With all the small roots trimmed off, the tap root weighed 35lbs when brought to our office.
