Wednesday, August 7, 1918: “vegetables, chiefly turnips and mangels”

Wednesday. August 7th.     Wrote home interesting facts [code] as to the abundance of food.  The varicose vein seems to be diminishing in size, happily.
We seem to be coming in lately for a large amount of vegetable soups; fresh vegetables, chiefly turnips and mangels; my particular abomination of course.  It is usually nick-named Fresh Fruit – amongst us.  Nowadays I only visit the dining hall for barley, semolina, and potatoes.
