I've been growing the little round dutch ones (starts with a "P") this 
year. They've done well and are great fun to pop in your mouth in the 
garden. I like them better than Thumbelina. 

A woman who owns a herb nursery in NC told me on the phone today that she 
planted some parsnips to shut up one of her grandkids who was yammering 
that he wanted some. Well, she said she forgot about 'em....never pulled 
'em and was pleasantly surprised when they shot up 6 feet and bloomed to 
beat the band. She said they were absolutely gorgeous. I'm gonna try it.
