Can I cut the tops of my turnip leaves for turnip greens now, and will they still grow the turnip? Mine came up early.

If you want to harvest them for turnip greens, you can. If you harvest the whole top, the root will not develop well. If you leave the tops on, it should still develop a turnip root.
