Parsnips and Scarlet Nantes carrot seeds planted
Planting note: parsnips (Ferry-Morse Hollow Crown variety) and carrots (Burpee scarlet nantes variety) planted in the garden boxes where I transplanted the broccoli, red cabbage, bell peppers, parsley, purple and spicy globe basil, and Italian oregano starts the other week. One of the bell pepper plants has opened a blossom, and the other has a couple ready to open soon. The two success stories in the one box are Greek oregano and the green onions. If neither of those two seeds sprout in two weeks, I'll plant some more. Eventually, something ought to grow other than rope grass and sand spurs.
