Mine also look like this, however i'm inclined to leave them a while to see if they get any bigger.

they will get bigger if left in the ground. I missed a few at the end of last year, and they kept growing through the winter, didnt grow too much through the snow Wink but they did survive.

i was able to harvest some of them early spring, and they were fine.

im letting one or two go to seed now in the area to see what happens...
