A blog describing how we use our allotment and what we grow there.

Parsnips are very had to germinate apparently. So I've never tried. Until this year when I decided to chit some seed to see if it might be worth giving it a go. So I put some on some kitchen roll in a sandwich box and so many have grown that this afternoon we found that we'd run out of toilet rolls to pot them up in. A sucess I hope. So will I be enjoying a nice bowl of spiced parsnip soup this time next year? Time will tell.
I've always had a passion for plants especially edible ones. We have a young family so it seemed the ideal time to get an allotment in rural Leicestershire and get them involved. We have a small half plot and aim to make it productive and fun. If I can do it you can too - get digging!
