Parsnips do need a long growing season and I honestly think the seeds would be wasted if sown now. I sow mine in early March and they are decent size by Chrstmas. However, they do grow very well in raised beds with the bonus that they tend to germinate better than they do in the ground, so certainly try some next year. For this year I would concentrate on salad crops such as lettuce etc. Beetroot and turnips would also be worth trying as those grow fast. Hopefully others might chip-in with a few ideas?
