Vegetables - Parsley
( Originally Published Early 1900's )
The leaves of parsley are used for flavoring and garnishing. The crop is managed in the same way as parsnips, except that the leaves are gathered whenever desired and the roots allowed to remain where they are until the seed stalk begins to grow the following spring. For winter use the roots may be taken up in the fall and planted in pots or boxes and kept in the kitchen window. Among the best known varieties are Double Curled and Fern Leaved. Often parsley is used for edging flower beds, because of its attractive dark green foliage.
