Broccoli Rabe help?

Just bought some broccoli rabe plants from a local nursery. 4 look fine but two have shoots in the center and flowers on them (wish I knew how to post a picture). Have those two plants bolted already and hence are useless to me?

Enjoy.

A plant originally from the Mediterranean region, with a slightly bitter taste. The stems, leaves, floral buds and flowers are all edible. The stems have a milder flavor than the leaves

Goldstar - but it's already bolted - it's no good to me now - right?
