Very last harvest

by balconydresser

parsnips_2502Spring is nearing and the first sprouts tell us about it. Before new plants can take over my balcony, however, I had to dig out the remaining harvest from last year, that is some more parsnips. They had been well-conserved in the soil during the winter months and even the long freeze-up did not do them any harm. And what a pleasure it is to enjoy some fresh homegrown vegetables in February!

PS: Growing parsnips even on my tiny balcony has been so rewarding, I will definitely sow them out againt his year.
