I went to a lot of trouble to prepare my raised beds.  I added compost and well rotted manure.  I dug them over well.  I waited for the milder weather to sow the first seeds.  Result….so far nothing.

So explain to me how in my onion rows there are now three healthy looking parsnip plants? These must have grown from seed I put in last year which for whatever reason didn’t germinate last year, but just decided, after being the ground through all that sub zero weather we had, that now this year was the time to grow…

I bet if I’d deliberately put parsnip seeds in that part of the garden, they wouldn’t have germinated.

I’m confused….!  😉
