A Bounty of Parsnips

Holy crap yes! It's Arcata Farmer's Market season again. There's nothing like the first Farmer's Market of the year. I was inspired to harvest the remainder of the winter parsnips that were in the gardern to clear the way for the springtime planting bug. I love everything about these guys, espeically the carroty-potatoey smell. Before moving here, I had never eaten one or considered growing them. But they're so easy! This is going to be a parsnippy week.
