New Garden Success

This is the first year that I've grown parsnips, which if you know anything about parsnips, get harvested in the spring. So it was a year ago that I put those little translucent seeds into the dark ground and then had to wait and wait and wait to see if they had grown to a worthwhile size! At the beginning of the month, we dug them up, which of course is highly gratifying - a reason to dig in the dirt in early March, and to pull out real food from the garden in March. Unbelievable! We had a pretty good harvest, which of course leads me to want to plant more:)
