The photo above is turnips. Nothing too fancy there - just plain ol' turnips. The curious thing is that even though I know the seed is good, and is going to grow, I still insist on dropping a few seeds in a given location thinking that a few of them aren't going to grow. Strange - I don't do this with larger bulb type crops such as garlic or onions. And seed potatoes get chopped up into fairly small pieces to stretch them further.
I think these few weeks are my favourite of the year. In the rational part of my brain, I know that if I provide a basic set of conditions, the seed is going to grow. But watching it happen is still magic beyond words.
