What are the pros? easy to grow, no pest problems
What are the cons? waiting
I started a new garden the first year in our new home. Added some compost and manure but not quite enough as I realized later. My soil was still clumpy with our unusually cold, rainy spring this year. Despite all this, these parsnips did well. NOTHING ate the leaves at all. Took awhile to germinate which may be hard for the impatient gardener, but they came up, i mulched with straw, and just now harvested. They grew much better in my raised bed with compost only soil but even in the ground, I got some decent sized parsnips. Mine weren't really sweet as stated by the other reviews, but I've only had one frost here so maybe if I had waited until more frosts, maybe they would be sweeter. I was impressed with this little root veggie and it's wonderful that in November I can still help my grocery budget by going out to the garden and picking this root. Definitely try for next year.
