    Default Parsnips...and leeks

    Still have a few in the ground. Harvested some today for dinner. Unfortunately although edible, the parsnips are abit long in the tooth!

    LOL literally - one was over a foot long!

    Loving the fact we grew these ourselves though.

    Leeks are small but yummy! Looking forward to next years crops now

    If you think your parsnips are a bit long in the tooth Witch 1, you could make some leek, parsnip and ginger soup. Two sheds posted a recipe if you search for it. Or make it any way you like. I'm having some tonight and very delicious it is. (Thank you Two Sheds)

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
