Weary and worn out
My project today is to remove the tomato cages, dead plants, and the green tomatoes all over the ground. I was making good headway when I got distracted by the parsnips. This year is the first time I ever planted parsnips; according to information on the Internet, they are better left in the ground until a hard freeze, or even better, until the next spring.
That doesn't work for me. I like for Cliff to plow my garden, and he doesn't want to have to dodge around plants here and there. So I decided to see how big the parsnips were, and maybe cook some today to see whether I even like them.
THIS ONE. I almost decided to toss them out, because slicing them was like trying to slice the inside of a tree! However, they did cook tender in the microwave. I'm going back to my garden cleanup for now, and will fry them as instructed when it's dinnertime.
