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 🙄

😞 Carole, although it is funny. Very restrained there Gary @scaryskates considering the other body part I can see 😉

@daisy-jane besides the little extra I thought it looked like a barbie doll 😂😂 yes @linfoster it's had the chicken coop deposits on it all winter so I was thinking I'd over fertilised, it's been destoned and dug deep so they can grow straight, and they grew brilliantly last year there.. some you win some you lose!

Oh challenge on @elsie I look forward to seeing those! @rachelbrooks ha ha sounds like my dad, he cut the mould of the cheese, drank unpasteurised milk and ate out of date food in defiance!

😂😂 mind you Carole I do that with the out of date food...with the exception of dairy and fish, I'm convinced it's just a ploy to get us to buy more!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Out of date food would be a dream.. @rachelbrooks 😂despite the 4 children having homes of their own they still raid the fridge 😡 but yes I'd still eat out of date food, If you wash it down with gin it's like an alcohol cleanser 😏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 😂😂
