I'm a parsnip serial killer.
OK, so I dug just ONE about 2 weeks ago, because I moved back a little of the soil around the crown just to see how wide the shoulders were, since it had a really big top. Then, I had to dig it, just to see how big it was (actually, only about a foot long, wide and stubby like a Danvers carrot, must be "Hollow Crown").
I said "I can stop any time I want to."
But, then I fried it up with some sliced onion. Oh, it was so good.
Now, I have dug again. I couldn't stop at one or two.
I dug about 8 of them yesterday. I'm going to cook them tonight.
I know, I should wait until late March, when the soil thaws, they'll be SO sweet and succulent.
But, I can't help myself.
Please, help me, before I dig again. ;-)
