All you can do is keep removing the flower heads as they appear.

Unfortunately, once they start to bloom, that usually means that they are getting tough and hot, underground.

You could try another sowing of turnips

Make sure the soil is rich, and has a reasonable amount of nitrogen, and not too much bone meal, and keep them well watered, to prevent premature flowering in the future.
