Parsnips Started (Well, one bed)

The weather had been pretty dry here for the last week, so instead of watching football, rugby and GAA all day I decided that I’d try to till out a seed bed for some parsnips. The soil was just about dry enough to get a decent seed bed and I managed to get one 1.5m by 50m bed sown. There are 3 rows of parsnips per bed with 18″ between rows.

The pity however is that it’s supposed to rain here for the next 4/5 days so it is unlikely that I will be able to get anymore parsnips sown in the next week as the soil will be too wet to till. No worries though, still plenty of time to get them in the ground.

Just a sidenote here, the camera on my iPhone is pretty poor so from now on I’m going to try and take most photos with a proper digital camera.
