I had so much work at the office during the last weeks that I did not find enough time to write about my summer balcony on these pages. And this although I have the impression that caring for and looking at the plants really calms and thus helps me during periods of stress. So here is at least an update on the parsnips. There are five of them in this pot (and three more in other pots) and so far I am confident that we might end up with some roots to roast later this year. To give you a better idea of how the plants grow, I took a second photo, but I wish – not for the first time – that the house across the street had a nicer color.
