The garden is just about done for the season, so here’s one more post and then I won’t be back regularly until it’s time to plant in spring.

This weekend I harvested and ate parsnips from the gardenconnect plot. This is the first year I’ve grown parsnips, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I think I got a pretty good harvest! See photos below.
I planted parsnips early in the season, but you’re not supposed to harvest until after frost. I picked this weekend to dig up these roots because now we’ve had a good cold spell, but it’s also been rainy, so it was relatively easy to pull the roots out of the wet soil.
They were a little muddy…
But they cleaned up well! This is the entire harvest from my one garden connect square.
And today, I roasted them with a bunch of other root vegetables, and I ate them.
The verdict: I like parsnips. Will have to plant some again next year.
So long for now!
