Dinosaur Parsley

The paradox in gardening that I re-discover from time to time is: a wonderful success preceded by shear and utter neglect.

Our Continental Parsley is such a thing. The most that I could ever have contributed to this success is the choice of a good location (between our rainwater tanks – where the soil remains damp under the large tanks) and a few bucketful’s of decent compost. The rest it did itself.

It is high, large leafed and with very strong, sturdy, juicy stems and very green tasting leaves which I have very much enjoyed incorporating into our soups, omelets, broths, and other dishes. I have yet to make a nice parsley tea with a little jarrah honey. I’m looking forward to that very much.



About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
