Grow Your Own / Re: My leeks look like spring onions

I do the same as D.D. and most of my leeks are 3cm+ in diameter. They were transplanted after the early potatoes came out and they get a regular dose of liquid feed. I do think feeding is important, especially if they are following a previous crop.

Mine is covered with a muslin cloth like you. It was less fizzy today although from what Iíve read fizzy is good as it means the yeast is very much alive

Grow Your Own / Re: Parsnips Iím heartbroken!

It was my 4th sowing of the season before I got good germination of parsnips. I didn't expect too much from the April sowings but was starting to get depressed when nothing was showing after two May sowings. It was my desperate end of May effort that was successful and we now have a great crop that'll last until spring

Someone on the site suggested a method for growing carrots, which I am going to try next year, which may well work for parsnips too. What they suggested was to prep the soil and then put the string line down where you want to grow your crop then take a spade and put it in to the top of the spit rock back and forth to create a V shaped trench all along the line then back fill with a mix of fine compost or peat and builders sand. You then sow the seeds onto the centre of this mix cover lightly with the growing medium using a sieve and grow them.... sound like it will work the person said they get great carrots so why not parsnips ?
The Hen House / Re: Despondent hen

It usually takes more than 2 or 3 days to cure broodiness. Time is needed for hormones to get back to normal. Although if she was laying again it does suggest this happened. If you wanted broody hens you wouldn't get them!  :nowink:

all three times the hens went back to laying after a week, thank goodness :D

we got two new pullets 2 weeks ago and introducing them to the old flock at the moment.
