radishes poking out

Hi all, I noticed today that the top of my little radishes are poking out of the ground. they are not big enough to harvest; they are about the size of a large marble maybe?
Should I push them back down?
Should I pile some dirt around the exposed part?
Or should I leave them alone?
Thanks!!

I just put a very light coat of soil over them to keep the sun off of them.
I don't like them green on top.
The leaves may start showing pink or purple in them.
If they do it's time.
I never can wait that long.
If a disease doesn't kill them and a bug doesn't eat them there may be something left for you.
