Gone to Seed

flowering parsley

The parsley in our community garden has gone to seed. We love this as it means we will have more (free) parsley plants popping up in the not-to-distant future. What is your take on plants going to seed? Do you allow the process to happen naturally or do you intervene in order to maximise your harvest?

  1. I use parsley seeds in stocks, and soups and sometimes crushed in dishes like a gratin with potatoes, parsnip, carrots, kohlrabi, cream and garlic, plus bouquet garni. I know the roots are also edible but never did it until now.
