The end of the growing season is upon us (for the most part), but we have had a good run. I can not tell you a time when I picked tomatoes or peppers from my home garden in mid-October.

But November is the last month where you will be able to get a lot of local produce within the season. Namely root vegetables, which grow below the soil surface. Think of potatoes, carrots and rutabaga.

One of my favorite root vegetables that you will find at this time of year is the parsnip. Not to be confused with invasive parsnips, which, although beautiful, are an invasive plant that can make your skin blister.

No, the vegetable parsnip is a little sweet, tender when cooked and will make your fall and winter cooking much better.
