Default RE: Turnips or not?

We planted 2 turnip patches in on our farm this year and I have yet to see any activity in them. This is the first year we have tried the turnips, so I really don' t know if they just don' t like them, or they just don' t need them yet. We' ve had another good acorn crop this year and they seem to be concentrating on that right now.

How do they use them? Do they just eat the green tops off the turnips, or will they actually dig them up and eat them?

Another question:

When you introduce a new type of plot, do they know it' s good to eat? We also tried a new winter pea plot this year and they have totally ignored it. It looks really young and tender, but I can' t find a single plant that' s been nipped off yet.[]
