It's a good thing we weren't counting on parsnips for Christmas dinner! I forgot to harvest them! So, I went to the community garden last week to see if I could find them. The garden was fast asleep under a blanket of snow. I brushed off of the place in my plot where the parsnips were supposed to be. When I dug them up, I was disappointed at how small the were. However, they tasted great, roasted with other root vegetables. This year I will try parsnips again, but I think I have too many wood chips in the soil still. I will add a lot of compost and manure in the early spring to break them down. I hope this will help.
