The parsnips have been dug. They weren't as heavy or as impressive as I thought, weighing in at 7 pounds 8 ounces. One huge parsnip was woody as a tree trunk, so it wasn't added to the weight total. I was a bit disappointed that these weren't actually as good as the ones I dug earlier in the season. Those were tender clear through, and had a good flavor. These later ones had really tough unusable cores, so I am only using the outer parts. The flavor is about the same as the earlier ones. I'll not plant them in 2010, as they take up way too much valuable space for the crop I get from them. If Mr. H would eat them, I'd probably plant them, but as it is most are given away.
I'm waiting for Dan to comment on this "guy", LOL!
We held a pre-birthday party for grandbaby Alicyn last night, since we'll be gone when she celebrates her first one. It doesn't seem possible that it's been a whole year since THIS happened!
