Despite my first go at growing #parsnips last year being a success - really struggled to get many to germinate this year so this is a precious harvest! 💚💛

Epic if humorous fail on the #parsnips this year after repeated sowing 5 germinated and 1 produces this 😂😂 🙄showed some very late seeds on tapes so goodness knows what they will produce in the autumn 🙄

😂😂 mind you Carole I do that with the out of date food...with the exception of dairy and fish, I'm convinced it's just a ploy to get us to buy more! And I remember my dad actually waiting for mould to form on the cheese before eating it! 😳

Out of date food would be a dream.. @rachelbrooks 😂despite the 4 children having homes of their own they still raid the fridge 😡 but yes I'd still eat out of date food, If you wash it down with gin it's like an alcohol cleanser 😏

Oh dear @juliesgarden you'd have starved in our house this summer with my courgette glut! Even got a spiralizer to get more inventive 😂 saw a comedian last night that was taking the mick out of spiralizers and dared my husband not to "out" me 😂😂
