    Thanks for the welcomes! We grow lots of stuff but have not grown parsnips the last couple of years, just because we had to prioritize. But I love them and am hoping to grow them next year.

    For today, we're ditching the farm in favor of a ride over by Madison - one of the last warm days of the year, I think - and a visit to the bike shop.
