I'm not an expert when it comes to vegetable gardening. That's my husband's area but as he's not well enough to tend it I've been put in charge temporarily. I picked some delicious parsnips yesterday. They were a bit small but very sweet.
We never have a lot of success with root veg - had some rather small carrots in summer and are supposed to have swedes growing but they only have straight roots - rather like carrots or parsnips - not spherical ones!
