The parsnips are out of the ground, washed and headed to the “curing floor”; after which they go into perforated bags and into the fridge!
This is one of our better years for these!
Thank you Lord!

Carrot’s will be next and that will end the outside stuff for us.

Nice parsnip haul @Alasgun, and that is not an easy veggie to get a generous crop of. You are definitely providing them with what they need to do well. I've grown them a few times, and was surprised how pretty the foliage was.

I'm carrying over from another thread here, but just wanted to say how nice it is to hear that these alternate modalities of health, like chelation therapy, are becoming more widely practiced. It's a wonderful and important process for many, countless lives saved or rehabilitated by it. Such a blessing.

Thanks @heirloomgal, we grow the “white spear” variety. It took several years to learn how to get straight root’s. And another year or so to find a variety that liked Alaska. Since i cannot over winter them here; these represent the best i can hope for size wise.

Once i clean up “where the bomb went off”; i’ll be done for the year. Mostly😳
Carrots are in and will lay over night before bagging.

Today the bagging was completed and the Carrots, Beets and Parsnips are offically in for the year.

once that was done i felt inspired so i cleaned up all the residue from the garden and moved it to the compost pile. Along the way i saved out and hung some Rabbit Hay (carrot tops) for my furry friends. I think they’d rather eat the greens than the carrots themselves.

And this is the one day a year me and the family of field mice who live in the compost are in harmony. They seem to be a polite bunch and as long as i keep an eye on they’re population this is win win.
