Pretty, aren't they? I put that yardstick in there so you can see that these turnips are now 18" high.
I'm pulling them all out today. It's too bad we don't like to eat turnip greens, because these are all tops and no root. That's two years in a row for turnip failures. Evidently my soil is too rich in nitrogen for them, but I don't have any problems with the other root crops. The only good thing about it is....we don't like turnips, anyway!
All but one of my cantaloupe seedlings died. Snipped off by something unknown. It could have been cutworms, but the snipping was a bit high on the stem. Possibly birds. Whatever it was, they're gone. Seeds have now been planted in place.
Every one of my Diva cucumbers died of what looks to be damping off. I only have one seed left, which has been planted, in hopes of getting at least one Diva plant growing.
Why did I prune my raspberries so low last fall? They are blossoming now, but I doubt I get a very good crop from them this year. I should have known better! I'll blame it on a "senior moment".
we I fail.
