I found a few turnips in the garden that have been there since they were planted last summer. Somehow they made it through a Connecticut winter. They appear to be fine. Are they still edible?

Yes, they are. In fact, this was an old way of keeping carrots, turnips and other fairly hardy root vegetables through the winter - by leaving them in the ground where they would be insulated from most of the cold weather by soil and snow.
