First Harvest of "09"

With the threat of a real cold snap forecast for next week, today's 23 degrees seemed warm enough to try for a harvest. The parsnip row is under a snowy blanket but with a little effort the garden gave us the first harvest of the season - a beautiful 30 oz parsnip. Roasted root vegetable will be on the menu for tonight as the winter full moon rises over the garden.
Happy Gardening

  1. Why do parsnips taste better after being in the cold cold ground?
