Parsnipinomy


So anyway, as we're on the subject of parsnips, we learn today that parsnip in Russian is pasternak.

Scene 2. Movie Mohgul 'Oh please.....' (cut to script landing in the trash can)

Can't say I've ever had parsnips myself. I looked them up in my seed catalog and sure 'nuf, there they are. How do you like to prepare them for eating? My favorite line in the cat. is "do not step on or near the bed at any time until harvest." Maybe they didn't grow well in the hot summers where I grew up. I need to expand my veggie world! Thanks for the nice pic. comments.

Go for it! Nothing like a garden/culinary adventure. See next post for further details (too long for here), and let us know if you give it a go.
