Turnip !!!

I checked the turnip on Thursday, it was 2 inches or so in diameter. Checked it again Saturday, it's 4 inches, argh. There it is, all washed up, ready to go in the house.

That is a 15oz can next to it for size comparison. It's the only turnip to reach maturity, the others were either bug food or didn't grow. I will try some more in a few months, maybe the bugs will let me harvest a few.

She's a beauty! Too bad the others didn't grow, but I do think we have fewer problems with the bugs in our fall veggies. About the time we're crying over powdery mildew on our squash and cukes, the beets and carrots decide to reward us with some extra goodness.

No that, my good man, is worthy of the name "Turnip".
