Planting Tips:

Sow in shallow furrow and cover with ¼” of sifted compost or light sand.  Best fall planted, but can withstand cooler summers, germination can take up to 3 weeks.  Careful weeding is important because of the long germination.  Needs consistent watering and loose soil.  Not happy when transplanted, best direct sown.

Seeding Rate:

200,000-300,000 plants/acre, aproximately 3-4 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.


Parsnips with butter and herbs
2 lbs parsnips (cut into rounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup mixed herbs packed loosely (our favorite is a mix of rosemary and sage but a mix of parsley and chives is also quite good)
salt & pepper to taste
Place the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a saucepan on medium high heat.  add the parsnips and a pinch of salt and pepper to the pan and toss them around until they are coated in oil.

Add 1 cup water and bring it to a boil.  Add a lid to the pan and let simmer until the parsnips are tender, around 20 minutes.
When they are tender to your liking drain any excess water.  add 1 stick of butter and 1 cup herbs of your choosing to the parsnips.  stir until butter is melted and is coating the parsnips completely.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
