I also dug up my parsnips and spread out the soil on both my raised beds, then I re-planted the parsnips. The soil is a bit lumpy with stones and bits of root, but I can gradually remove these and also start to add compost/manure as the years go by. The soil isn't bad though its pretty crumbly with the odd lump of grey clay. It started to rain so hopefully it will water them in a bit. They should be ok as they roots are only just showing.
I've still quite a bit to do but its getting there.
