In this short film I crop the parsnips that were direct sown in stations earlier in the year,I didn’t thin them to one root as the smaller roots are sweeter and the overall crop bigger if left to grow.
Now is the time to be sowing your parsnips for the winter. These are one of my all time favourite vegetables! They can be tricky but well worth the effort and they really do respond to having well prepared soil and being kept weed free over there long growing season
If your soil is heavy its always a good idea to incorporate some grit or “Rock Dust” into the growing deb and use a proper rake to create a fine tilth for sowing
