    Hi Dobby ( mrs dobby for that matter)

    If you do have a go with parsnips just be careful with the sap from the tops, it's like Giant hogweed (same family) & it contains a substance that will bring you out in blisters if it gets on your skin & then gets exposed to light.

    Thanks for the tip! Looks like another good reason for investing in a decent pair of gardening gloves! Mr Dobby has some, but generally I dont tend to use them, so perhaps will have to start!

    Hi nick,that is a fact i didnt know, am growing veggies for first year and came out in a really bad rash on the inside of my forearm,very sore and ugly, the chemist thought it might be from a courgette plant but from the sounds of it might have beent the parsnips.

    Hubby hoping would put me off growing courgettes again as he is getting a little fed up of them in every meal!

    Will take more care around the parsnips too now, this gardening is a risky business!!
