Just scraped away the two inches of snow on top of my root veggie bed in search of looking for parsnips for dinner and discovered more than I planned on finding. Planted 20 parsnips, variety Hollow Crown from around 1850, received all 20 for a total weight of 46.3 pounds. Over 2.3 pounds apiece. Score!!! Same garden bed earlier this year, American Purple top Rutabagas from around 1920, as big as softballs.
Please show some of your roots.
