Giant radishes and green tomatoes

I was looking through the garden for some salad stuff and I couldn't figure out why the section labeled "bartender mammoth radishes" had really big full greens but the radish part I could see poking out of the ground looked so small compared to the regular radishes. I pulled one mostly out of frustration and this is what I got, yes all three are radishes:
The bartender mammoth radish, nearly a foot long
I was so excited I pulled two regular radishes for comparison (and dinner) and ran inside and snapped this photo. :)

Also, the weather is getting too cold for the tomatoes so I pulled the tomato plants and picked all of these green tomatoes, mostly they will ripen inside and I'll feed them to the chickens. I have no idea what else to do with them all.
Fried green tomatoes anyone?
