    Yes they do - and we have grown them in the past but they got flea beetle.
    The French seem to shy away from parsnips and beets as they historically have been thought of as winter cattle fodder.
    More sweet varieties are available in recent years and you certainly see more parsnips now in the shops, Turnips occasionally and swedes very rarely.

    • Blackberry and apple jam sponge pudding with custard for dinner

      Lunch will be veggie lasagne, what was to be dinner but I fancied a pudding.

        • The breadmaker is clanking away quietly and I think I'm going to make some of the carrot, ginger and thyme soup again I made last week to go with it.

          Nicos I remember once telling a Frenchman I was making mashed swede and his face was a picture. "Cattle food, we had to eat it in the war" was his comment.

            • In theory, chicken stir-fry with sweet bean sauce and a ton of veg. But I've just had lunch (a plateful of raw veg and some ham and cheese) that I'm so full I can't imagine wanting supper. I can see Mr Snoop having spag bol for one.

                    • Tonight I made pasta bake for us, for the freezer and some to give away. Served with garlic bread.

                          • I'm just going to set the slow cooker off with braising steak, onion, carrots and celery. I think we'll have it with mashed potato and swede and broccoli.

                            • Leftover roast chicken and steamed veg. Not terribly exciting, I guess, but we'll be hungry so it's bound to taste delicious. Diet is going relatively well...
