The Gigantic Turnip


The old man and old woman plant their garden—peas, carrots, potatoes,beans, and last of all, turnips. They harvest all of their vegetables, but when it came to harvest the turnips, they noticed just one set of greens above the soil. The farmer and his wife tugged and tugged, but could not get the turnip to budge out of the soil. They quickly realized this was no average sized turnip! Finally, with the help of the farm animals, they are able to pull the turnip up. What will they do with the gigantic turnip?
