According to that English band Bucks Fizz: "My Camera Never Lies."
The Parsnip is approximately twelve inches long - honest!. It's not had any special ingredients except half a grass box full of garden soil (all stones) removed and filled up with a cheap bag of compost from Aldi. Then we placed about 6 Parsnips seeds in the compost and waited about 28 days for them to germinate. Then I turned on the polytunnel irrigation hose twice a day and gave the Parsnips a handful of chicken pellets and a few months later I have show Parsnips.
It's so easy to grow large Carrots and Parsnips if you give them plenty of room to stick their tap root down. If they find manure or stones the roots fork. I am going to sow some Spring Cabbage seed and sow some Autumn King Carrots this week. Think I will make some ridges to get a good depth of soil.
What veg plants are you planting and sowing at the moment? picked when they are small. I often see people in the supermarkets picking a large Swede and I think:
"That will be so tough and bland."
You can't beat homegrown vegetables , fruit and meat.
