This morning I dug up some parsnips that overwintered in the garden to sweeten them up. I also removed most of the straw on top of the garlic bed. The garlic cloves were planted last October Spring Gardening - Parsnips and Garlic Img_2745

I have planted parsnips for the first time in a grow bag.  Not even sure they've come up yet, as the dang birds keep pitching bird seed out of the feeder, which ends up in everything!  If I have no success at this point, I may wait and try again in the fall.  I love parsnips but they are SO expensive in the grocery store!

Parsnips take a very long time to germinate, up to 4 weeks. Lots of patience needed. Keep watering them.

The "keep watering them" part is critically important, if the seeds are allowed to dry after planting they will not germinate.  I have found that if I soak the seeds overnight before planting it will shorten the germination time by about a week.
