This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

I dug down a bit around the crown of one of my parsnips today. Yes! A root. I won't pull these til after a frost, but they are coming along.

The past two years I tried to grow parsnips and was not able to get them to sprout. This year I kept reseeding and watering. They start out very slowly.

That looks like two parsnips together there. I think we will have eaten all of ours before a frost comes, better grow more next year!

Yup, that's two of 'em. Probably should've thinned them.

Are they good before a frost? I thought you had to wait.

Definitely better after a frost, I love roast parsnips. Haven't grown any yet as our soil is so heavy. I need to prepare a proper "parsnip patch" next season.
