so glad for this blog, as grown parsnips for the first time this year, started them off in loo roll holders then once seedling appeared planted in ground up the allotment, they all have come on lovely (or so i thought) until i decided to dig up a couple to try, both had long thin roots but 2 to 3 on each parsnip and the top was rounded, i still roasted them and they were lovely, but can someone explain forking as was this what i should’ve done as our soil is heavy with clay :)
