Just a quickie - never having grown this before, can anyone tell me how you
know when it's ready for harvesting? Many thanks!

When it's as big as you want. Seriously. You can eat them realy small, or
wait until they're bigger. They are edible as soon as you have anything
worth eating.

And the root will be partly out of the ground so it will be easy to
see how big it is.

As the roots start to swell, their 'shoulders' break the soil surface.
