Parsley, Einfache Schnitt 3 (Organic)
Translates from German as ‘easy cut,’ which proves to be very true. Incredibly flavorful and hardy, the dark green, flat leaves grow upright allowing for easy harvest and built-in rot resistance. High quality, marketable appearance and healthy year-round, even in the dead of winter. Several local organic growers have sung the praises of Einfache Schnitt 3 and we too relied on it all season long. Originally sourced from Bingenheimer Saatgut, the German biodynamic seed company.
Sow in clusters indoors March through May after soaking seeds overnight. Transplant groups of three to 12” centers in fertile garden soil when plants are 3” tall. Keep well-watered and harvest leaves as needed. A great choice for winter gardens in our area.
Collect seeds from 15+ plants in their second year. Cut seedheads when seeds are dry, thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow to clean. Isolate from other flowering parsley (including root & curly parsley) by ¼ mile.
