hi, being a novice gardener , first year after retirement, i have planted numerous veg with a limited success, but turnips have been a castraphe, can't spell either, turnips have grown to the size of a jaffa orange, upon pulling 2 up one was split and both were brown inside , not right through but it put us off eating them, can you possibly advise what i have done wrong, thank you dave
