One of the best "crops" that we've planted in the garden in recent years are purple-top turnips. Ordinarily, we plant them in the fall and they supply us with a steady stream of turnip greens throughout the winter. Sometimes, though, I not only forget to thin them out, but I also neglect pulling them up. So, as we've now hit Spring, it's time to clear out the planting beds and as part of this, the turnips had to go. I threw my fist in there for reference as I had them sitting outside on top of the smoker, but it still doesn't give full weight to the almost-bowling-ball size of a couple of these giants. Probably way too much turnip there.
Onward to Spring plants and planting! It's the best time for gardens!

So I have decided that eggplants and bell peppers are a great garden-type vegetable investment. Here we are, middle of November, and all of those plants are still cranking out vegetables. On top of that, they are big, healthy plants that take up a good space in the garden. I pulled 5 peppers for a King Ranch Chicken Casserole and also grabbed a BIG eggplant off the vine this morning, and still left about 5 eggplants and a ton of peppers still out there. With a freeze looming soon, I have no doubts that these will soon disappear. Still, it's been a nice long run this year. Those (and my prolific jalapeno plant) are definitely on the list for next year.
