Pam DawlingParsnips are workhorse root crops that thrive in mild weather, store well and can provide high yields for the time invested. Parsnips are a traditional northern European vegetable that is surprisingly easy to grow in warmer climates, while also being extremely cold-tolerant. Parsnips have similar requirements to carrots and beets - all store well, and have the benefit of providing vegetables for sale after the harvest period is over, giving the farmer time to rest a little or delegate the sales to an intern while taking a vacation. CSA farmers can also use storable crops as the flexible “filler” in the box: more when other crops are in short supply; less in bountiful weeks.
