Yeah, it's about time to start harvesting the parsnips. I grab a few for supper about once a week, and I hopefully have enough to keep harvesting until March.

Not a lot of folks eat parsnips, and I have no idea why. They taste a lot like peanuts but with a softer consistency and a very rich flavor. Try it in the store first, then plant some. They are very easy to grow from seed.

It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
