Went out this morning and on a whim pulled the parsnips I’d planted around the potted bay tree. These were little seedlings that I’d pulled out months ago to give the parsnips in the wicking bed room to grow and I’d shoved them in with the bay tree just to give them a chance at life. I figured that any growth was better than none at all. Then I went in and weighed them.
90 grams. Then my memory kicked in… the soup I’m going to make for dinner tonight to practice for the thermomix varoma demo needs 150g of either turnip or parsnips. With just a few more parsnips I could have that part of the recipe done and dusted.
I raced out and kept pulling up parsnips one by one, then rushing inside, topping and tailing them and weighing them.
A little bit over but who cares? Plus the parsnips that are left now have a bit more room to expand.
Then I went out and planted some carrot seed. Because I can.
