I was thinking of growing some turnips this year.
1) what are the rules on ripping off the greens? How many
to pick and how many to leave? And, cut, tear, pull from
where? At the base? leave a few inches?
2) how do you know when to pick the bulbs without digging
them up to look? Is there some indication that they are
in picking range? Sacrifice a few? Just watch you

This site has info about harvesting the GREENS:
I've never used them, though I've always heard that the most nutritious part of
the plant IS the greens. I know people who float torn leaves on soup/stew.
When ground crops like turnips, carrots, etc. are ready to harvest, they bulge a
little out of the earth. Be sure to dig deep around when harvesting; I have
been known to slice into carrots -- my bad.
A good site for harvesting turnips:
