Parsnips, looking good

Postby Stephen » Sun Nov 17, 2019 4:18 pm

After the issues with my leeks, I'm delighted that my parsnips (which germinated extraordinarily well) are looking great.

Looking good Stephen! Mine are pretty erratic, even some I tried in the potato sack things are forked, but have some good ones as well but yours look much bigger.

They look pretty healthy and nice and straight too. Haven't dug any of mine up yet but now we've had the first frost which OH is so raving about .........!

Does leaving them in the ground for long periods increase the risk of canker ? I,ve normally always dug them up as needed rather than digging and storing yet rarely seem to have suffered this problem. Is it an infection which tends to remain dormant in the soil?
