I am new to growing veg being lucky enough to buy a house in an acre of land last December. We quickly got to work digging some veggy beds not thinking that we would yield much this year. To my surprise we have had a good crop of spinach and a whole sack of potatoes. Despite the beds being flooded (up to a foot of water) twice over the summer, the marrows have been amazing and I now have a few dozen jars of marrow chutney! My next challenge is to try to germinate some parsnips next year as they failed to even get going - any tips?
