Now I know that to most people this may not seem like a particularly praiseworthy achievement, but for me it is. For some reason Parsley has not done well in my garden in recent years (there was a time many years ago when it seemed to be effortlessly successful), so this year I have tried very hard to redress the balance.
In every available space - and particularly at the base of each of the poles for the French Beans - I have planted Parsley. It seems to have worked!
The irony of this situation is that with Jane having been away for a while, and then in hospital, and now slowly recuperating (with little interest in anything other than very straightforward food), we have not eaten much Parsley recently! I therefore decided to harvest a big batch of it and freeze it for later use...
Parsley that has been frozen is only of limited value, I think. It is OK for use in hot dishes, but obviously no good for salads or garnishes because it is limp when thawed. Still, preserving some of it this way means that it doesn't get wasted.
