Not much to talk about now, so I found this photo of turnip leaf damage from last season. Any idea what the culprit might be? My guesses are, thrips, spider mites, or flea beetles. There weren't any aphids on the leaves.
I had pretty much written off the turnip crop with this kind of damage, but I sprayed with alcohol or neem, or maybe both. The new leaves came out after that and looked good. I had the best turnip crop I'd ever had. Couldn't believe it. Now, I don't know if the spraying did anything, or if the insect just may have run its course.
Whenever I would water the plant or spray with something, I could just barely see the "no see ums" as they flew away, that's how tiny they were.
