laughing wit tears laughing wit tears Hey C isn't that what you do with seeds

Thats what I do bung them in the garden bed, some might prefer to pot them up first.
I am not one for that way except with special tomato seeds

Parsnip seeds are slow to germinate my Yates book states 21-28 days I have no idea.
To me they are just like carrots to grow, so bung them in and see what happens

Yes tessa it was "S" word, get some in the mail to you as well on Big Smoke Friday

You may have bought the seed last year Cheryl but you know how old the seed was before its even packaged.

MA you obviously have not had baked parsnips cooked by someone who knows just how to
cook them right.THEY ARE NOT Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack
They are thumb2 thumb2 thumb2 thumb2 thumb2 delicious.I love them cooked anyway.
No one asked about Baked tomata charlotte, which means everyone knows what it is and how to make it.I have not seen it cooked anywhere for a long time , exept in my own kitchen cooked by Faye.
