Parsnip
We think there is nothing quite like roasted parsnips during the winter. We lift ours as we need them but take care if there is going to be a freeze and lift them before the ground becomes too hard! They like soil that is well dug and warmed from cloches; alternatively you can start them in deep pots and plant out at the two leaf stage.
