I’m new to vegetable gardening. Read some gardening books and followed instructions, but I planted turnips in the fall, and I have very little turnips. Look like radishes. Now they are blooming. Am I supposed to keep the tops cut back to make the root grow? Does flowering mean the end of the growth cycle and should I pull them? I’ll try again now that it’s spring, but need more info here.
