Parsnip   Pea  
Parsnip
Pastinaca sativa
Parsnips have been cultivated in Europe for over 500 years. It is a nutritious root vegetable with a sweet nut-like flavour. Use parsnips like carrots, in soups and stews, or steamed or baked. The roots become sweeter after exposure to frost. Parsnips will yield heavily in well prepared soil. In cool areas sow in spring and early summer for an autumn, early winter harvest. In warm areas sow early autumn. Germination can be slow in very cold soils, preferred germination temperature is 10 - 20°C.
Parsnip 'Guernsey'
'Guernsey' is a French heirloom parsnip; it is a nutritious root vegetable with a sweet nut-like flavour. Roots are long, very smooth and tapered 30 cm. Use in soups and stews, or steamed or baked. The roots become sweeter after exposure to frost.

Pisum sativum
Sow peas spring in cold areas, late summer to autumn in warm areas. Peas do best between 13°-18°C, a frost will damage the flowers. To reduce fungal problems, try to avoid planting before periods of high humidity and avoid getting water on the leaves. Grow in full sun in a sheltered position. Direct sow 3-5 cm deep, space 7.5 cm apart. Lightly mulch seed rows to prevent crusting. Water well once after sowing and then do not water again until seedlings appear. Peas dislike acidity, so lime if necessary. Prepare soil with compost before sowing; practice crop rotation to avoid disease build-up.
All pea seed that is not organically certified is supplied as untreated seed.

Asian and Tropical Vegetables For Hot Wet Summers
If you are challenged by pest and disease problems in your vegetable garden during hot, humid summers, don’t give up! Green Harvest offers a range of vegetables, grown around the world in subtropical and tropical areas, that we have found to be hardy and reliable to the weather extremes of high temperature and humidity experienced in the ‘wet season’. As a general rule sow these vegetables from October through to March, to replace more temperate varieties. Seeds suitable for subtropical and tropical conditions are marked H for hot and humid!

Part of the problem is gardening books written by authors from cooler areas neglecting to give good advice on plant selection for northern areas of Australia. We recommend the books The Seed Savers Handbook or Organic Vegetable Gardening for the best information on subtropical vegetables.
