Organic Parsley - packed with vitamins and minerals


Growing parsley as an herb and vegetable originated around the Mediterranean Sea thousands of years ago.

Parsley is a member of the same family as carrots. When growing parsley, be aware that the same pests afflict them similarly.

Growing parsley for tea is recommended by Chinese and German herbologist for the controlling of high blood pressure.


It takes about 70 to 90 days for planting and growing parsley from the time the seeds are planted until harvesting time, depending on your climatic conditions.

If you live in a Northerly climate, its best to plant your seeds in trays indoors, then transplant them into your garden or herb garden after the danger of frost is past.

You'll want to start growing parsley indoors about 6 or 8 weeks ahead of the last frost.

In Southern climates you can seed several times throughout your growing season to achieve ongoing harvesting from April until December.

In most climate areas in the mainland U.S., parsley can be over-wintered and harvested in the early spring.

If you plant too early in the spring, a cold snap might cause the plant to bolt (go to seed) early.

Parsley prefers at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun daily, and does well with some shade as long as it gets the sun it needs.

In warmer climates, some afternoon shade is preferable.

Parsley actually does best in cooler climate areas, and grows best in rich, moist, but well-drained soil.


While parsley grows best in a pH between 6.0 and 7.0, it will tolerate well pH levels between 5.3 and 7.3.
Parsley needs a good supply of nitrogen (N) to grow green quickly and produce flowers and seeds
Phosphorus (P) in your soil encourages strong roots and rapid growth in parsley.

Potassium, or Potash (K), aids in fighting disease, photosynthesis, and building of protein in parsley.
All of these nutrients are organically available in compost, composted manure, bone meal, and blood meal among others.

Check the pH level of your soil with a tester. If you need to make it more alkaline, add lime. To make it more acidic, add sulphur.

To prepare your ground for planting parsley, layer about 2 to 4 inches of composted manure and/or compost (you can also add bone meal and blood meal) where your rows will be and till it into the soil to about 6 inches deep.
Rake the row areas until smooth, remove any stick or rocks or other debris, and break up any dirt clods.
7.    Omble-knight's nets in mushrooms and oil of parsley


1,2 kg of nets of omble
250 g of mushroom (mixture)
oil of olive to roast
salt, pepper
1 c. in soup of hacked parsley and hacked scallions
1/2 c. in coffee of hacked garlic
1 dl of brown bottom of well reduced calf
Oil of parsley:
2 dl of oil of pips of grapes
80 g of flat parsley

9.    Method: 

Sort out and wash the parsley, by abolishing the big stems. Mix leaves with oil and top of salt. Let soak 3 or 4 hours. This oil can keep several days in expenses. Clean, slice thinly and skip mushrooms, in the oil of olive. Season and add the scallion, the parsley and the garlic. Blend long before to blow up. Add the brown bottom and be fond of heat without cooking, complicate possibly of a net of lemon juice. Season the nets of omble, then make them roast in the oil of olive in a frying pan in the "Teflon". Will you colour the 2 faces and raise, by accompanying it with some ragout of mushrooms, with a cord of oil of parsley, just lukewarm, and of a bit of fried parsley?
