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.
