Parsley root is a vegetable which is quite suitable for cultivation in mixed culture, as it can thrive with a little good planning between even reasonably tall crops, where most other things would languish due to lack of light.
In this bed peas should be sown several times during May. They were seen in double rows with 60 cm in between - and with 15-20 cm and a fence between the individual rows. This gives about 40 cm with a mustache between the double rows, and here the parsley roots were seen. The seeds have been soaked in water overnight to shorten the germination time, which can otherwise last up to 4 weeks depending on the weather. The parsley roots now have a head start so they have the opportunity to see the light before the peas begin to shade them. From sometime in late May, there will be a few months of a shady existence before the peas are removed after harvest - and then the parsley roots will once again have plenty of light to continue the growth in the autumn. As the pea plants are removed in late summer, you can use the empty space, for example, to sow spinach, plant lettuce, beets or perhaps bush beans.
