I read and have tried this trick. When planting, after the seeds are laid and not yet covered, pour very hot water over the seeds then cover with soil. Place a board or other covering over the row to hold in the moisture. Parsnips are best harvested after a frost has set the sugars - oh so sweet and nice - especially fried in butter. Yummmmy!
