Peeking at Presents

It is the day after Christmas and I wanted to peek at a couple of presents, patiently waiting their turn in the garden.

We have had a few light freezes in the Raleigh area and at least one hard freeze so far this winter so the parsnips and carrots should be busily converting the starches into sugars making them sweet and delicious.

I pulled up a couple of volunteers to roast along with the leftovers for tonight’s meal and am pleased with the weight they have put on in the past 2 months.  Taste Test to come!
