A small bit of harvesting

Well, I got a handful of turnips from the garden today. Nothing really to write home about, but it is enough to make a batch of chicken soup, so I won't write it off as a total loss, but this goes back to my lack of balance in trying to get the garden started this year while still in school. I neglected to water the seeds regularly after I planted them, so many did not germinate.

On the other hand, I'm excited to report that I've gotten my first tomatoes from the garden! A couple ripe reds and a couple of green tomatoes that I had to pull early because they were dragging the vine down and touching the ground, which I understand can lead to disease. Here's a picture of my tomato bounty (so far).
