Parsnips often take a long time to germinate and they aren't very reliable.

Why don't you buy a good book, with photos, about vegetable growing?

There is another thread for all the complaints and grumbles called MOB rants that Gardening Grandma started. But I think some of you have been there already!

Should I keep my alliums?

Posted: 16/05/2013 at 18:45

Leave them, mine seed themselves and I just let them get on with it. My original ones still flower.

Hello, these are young parsnip plants. Thin them out to about 6" apart. Just carefully, with your fingers, pull out the excess.

 Do the same with the little gem lettuces, you will find that if you pinch out a few together and look at them each one will have it's own roots a a few leaves.

Sorry, I've never grown turnips, don't like them much, and onions I grow from sets (baby onions that you plant). But I think the onions look a bit small to handle. I'd leave them a little longer.

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all, been ironing and weeding this afternoon, depending on raining or not.

Loved Vicar of Dibley. Glad Dawn French has found a nice man to love.

I didn't agree with the "burnt at the stake" bit, but that was a joke! In fact, only just noticed that bit!!
