FARM GIRL'S CORNER - Parsnips, and dibblery on the cheap.

It's Me! Farm Girl!

 Hi! Farm Girl here with not so much of a "Corner", per se, but more of an observation. Do not throw that Sharpie away when it finally runs out of ink! The gray end makes an excellent dibble for everything from seeds to onion plants. And of course you are recycling for your own direct benefit, and saving the planet and leaving a tiny carbon footprint and all that happy horse crap. Just thought you'd like to know!


And now it's time to air a grievance, if I might! I was going through the seeds today to see what we'd be planting and you know what I found? PARSNIP SEEDS!  Who does that old fool Mac think is gonna be taking care of those proud beauties? Not me! He's lucky I help him "compress the hay" now and then! It can take 35 days for these things to sprout, and when they do, what do you have? Parsnips! I mean just LOOK at these things! What's next? Salsify? 

 They look soooo much better cooked, do they not? I wouldn't feed these to Leatherface! Well maybe him come to think
but nobody else.

Well this has been nice hasn't it? Remember, save those Sharpies, and thanks for stopping by Farm Girl's Corner!

Mac, those are pretty good looking parsnips, I bet Farm Girl will like them just fine when they're cooked, especially if you bribe her with a handy recycled dibble first.

Farm girl doesn't have to like everything growing in the vegetable patch and she's allowed to be snippy even about parsnips--or especially? Perhaps she's just PMS-ing.

A garden sheds comes in various types, sizes and designs. Therefore people have plenty of options. The most important thing is to find the most suitable one.

Hey wait a minute. I love parsnips. And parsley is good too. And...

I think Farm Girl's shorts are too tight and restricting blood flow to thought processes. Or to Mac's or something. or.

I'll just shut up now.

Wait! "Dibble"?? What?!! :-)

And parsnips? Gotta admit that I love parsnips!

Mac, you're in big trouble now, you have Pearl watching those parsnips and dibbles. Congrats, you're in the big time now. ":)))

I'll have to have a little talk with the Farm Wench - can't be offending the Parsnip Lovers of the Land!

We all have our favorites and Farm Girl can too. I'm sure she likes other veggies. Uncle Mac can have the parsnips. Problem solved!
