Chubeza Winter Greens

February 19-21 2024 – What is essential is invisible to the eye

The little prince crossed the desert and met with no living soul except one flower.

“Where are the people?” the little prince asked politely.

“People? I saw them, several years ago. But one never knows where to find them. The wind blows them away. They have no roots, and that makes their life very difficult.”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, from The Little Prince

One of the vegetables that signals the middle of winter for us is the parsley root, which takes its good time to reach maturity.  Though we seed it in the beginning of autumn, it is only ready for harvest in mid-winter when its arrival gladdens our hearts. The parsley root then finally shows up to join her good friend and distant cousin the celeriac, which we plant and do not seed, thus he arrives earlier.

This week we turn the Newsletter spotlight to these two spectacular roots. Although concealed from view, when they finally come out of hiding, it’s time to bring out the soup pot and celebrate (and not only with soup)!
