I have some turnips growing which are still the size of small marbles and some have not even swollen. Should i leave them in the ground or cut my losses and pull them out. I'm starting to think there is there no more hope left for them to get to decent size for me to harvest?



they will not do anything now sadly. next year they will go on to flower. So dig them up and they should still eat. 'fine dining baby swede'

Agree with SBG they wont do anything now - ours have been a good size for a while now.
