More Thinking Re Parsnips


I'm working on my Sowing and Planting Plant and with the huge parsnips I grow this year I'm thinking more about sequential sowing and harvesting  so I have decided to look at the back of each pack or the websites for the sow dates and harvest dates for each variety as I have  6 different varieties of parsnips and I was looking at growing 9 rows of 7 plants.
