I wonder how many other allotment holders have been saving these ready for sowing germinated parsnip seeds in ?
Do you sow parsnips in them? If not what do you sow in them?
Bearing in mind that at the moment because of the ulcers on my legs I'm house bound, but adamant that I will be better to get back on the allotment in 2024 here are my plans for the layout of "Avalon" for 2024 as of the 11th December. As always its subject to change but its my starter for 10.
Reviewing the diary over the last Eleven years for December
There is not a whole lot of growing that happens in December, its normally blustery, cold, rainy, and overcast. It's the only time of the year with no sowing programme, though some enthusiasts and trophy hunters will ignore convention. I can't shut my plot down completely because there is too much tidying and maintenance to do on plot 1A and I have infrastructure works to undertake on plot 1. I also need to go there for some Allotment Therapy and get out of the house.
