What happened to my turnips?!
I planted two 1/4 acre plots of turnips at my cabin in early August. I was up there over Labor Day and they were growing in better than the ever had. 5 weeks later, I go up today, and there’s not much left. I thought they turned sweeter after the first frost. Could the deer have already eaten them? The few that are left show holes in the leaves. Almost like small bugs are eating them. Could that be it? Has it been too wet and they died? I had a trail camera in the one plot, but it took a few pictures in September before it died, so that’s no help. I just thought this would be good to hunt over in mid/late October and now they are pretty much gone. On a side note, the cabin is in Bedford county. I know they are running around, but for the first time I saw a feral pig about a half mile from the cabin. Could that have done this?
