Parsley goes great in many cuisines and sauces.
Parsley has numerous medicinal uses. The leaf, seed and roots of the plant are used to make medicine. Take parsley by mouth for bladder infections, kidney stones, GI disorders, constipation, diabetes, cough, asthma, and even high blood pressure.
Start harvesting your Parsley when the stems have three or more clusters of leaves. The stems having less than three clusters should be left to grow.
Plant parsley every 2 weeks until late spring to have an everlasting crop.
Parsley plants are Biennial, which means that you will have to wait till the second year to harvest any seeds from your Parsley plant.
Bring a couple of Parsley plants indoors if you are in a cold climate and maintain them through the winter (they will continue to provide fresh parsley). Plant them back outside in the early spring and let these plants go to flower. Remember to choose your best plants for saving overwinter. These will provide the healthiest seed stock.
Harvest your seed heads when they become dark in color (lighter ones may not germinate). Dry them for several weeks and store them for next season.
