This week the moon has been right for digging up our root crops to choose those we want top plant back in the ground to grow to seed next summer. We dug up the Oxheart carrots, and chose those with the most true to type roots that had done the best. Oxheart carrots are an ancient carrots that came to our collection 20 years ago.
We chose the salsify that had no double roots or major branches off the main tap root, and those that had done the best. We chose the best straightest looking long tapered Avon Resister parsnips that had no forked roots etc. Both the Salsify and the Parsnips are from the Southland Henry Harrington collection.
