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 - 20C. Seed has only a short viability so should not be stored for long.

Pea
No TAS
Pisum sativum
Sow peas spring in cold areas, late summer to autumn in warm areas. Peas do best between 13-18C, 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.

Peanut 'Virginia Bunch' UT
Arachis hypogaea
Syn. Groundnut
Peanuts are a low growing, bushy annual legume to 50 cm high. 'Virginia Bunch' is a productive variety with good disease resistance and very large kernels. Peanuts can be grown from southern NSW to northern Australia in areas with 5 months of warm frost-free weather. Peanuts set seed by bending over the flower stalk and pushing it into the soil where the peanuts form. As a low growing legume with yellow pea flowers it makes an ideal 'living mulch' between rows of taller vegetables such as sweet corn. Sow seed in warm temperate areas from September to October. In subtropical areas sow September to December. In tropical areas sow during the dry season. Grow it in full sun in a well-drained loam, pH 5 – 8. Try to provide even moisture throughout the life of the crop as severe drought may cause toxic aflatoxins to infect the peanuts. Days to harvest: 155 days; harvest peanuts once the leaves start to yellow; wash and dry well. Roast in the shell at 180C for 20 - 25 minutes.
