Learning through observing is pretty fascinating. It makes you realize that one observation leads to a multitude of questions.  As an example, looking at this bed of turnips it is striking the full coverage of turnip and lack of weeds. Cameron and I both wondered why. Could it be due to the fact that they germinate so quickly, 5 to 10 days, and are ready for harvesting in 37 to 70 days, so they are growing faster than the weeds? Is it because of their rapid growth along with the fact that we direct seed these so the planting is denser?  Or maybe weeds don’t like turnips, not completely unreasonable, since there are plenty of silly people who don’t like turnips :). It will certainly be interesting to watch  what happens with the turnip patch.
