Just kidding, it's a parsnip. A huge parsnip. As a matter of fact, I don't ever want to eat another parsnip for as long as I live. I ate way too many from our farm cooperative last year, and frankly, they taste funny. Curse you, parsnip!
The good news is that the mint is in full bloom though the four-lined plant bug lurks and threatens. Our Mojitos are selling like, well, Mojitos. All of the staff have Popeye biceps from muddling and we can't seem to keep enough limes it the house, thanks to Caipirinhas as well.The lemon balm is also out of control, so please order a Lemon Coco Martini so I can cut this overgrown herb kingdoms back. Why, just six weeks ago our little mint family was barely poking its green heads above the ground.Just planted: baby basil for your pizzas and cucumber plants destined to become your cucumber gin and tonic.Next blog post: A revised recipe for the Rhubarb Martini!
