Seemed like a good day to plant Parsnips. I have never grown them before,but I have researched that they are very slow (3-4 weeks) to germinate and they can take up to 180 days to mature. They need to be sowed in a place that won’t be disturbed.


Working a new seed bed for the Parsnips…




Parsnip seed…




I am planting them 4 inches apart in rows on both sides of the dripline…







A good watering in…





Now to address the undisturbed bed element. I am laying down some 1×2 inch hardware cloth on top of the beds to discourage unwanted digging by my critters (dogs) and unwanted critters…






The finished plot for now…
