A Bunch of Parsnips

Not even a tyro at gardening or botany needs be told that the parsnip is own cousin to the carrot. It is equally obvious, however, that the two belong to quite different species. Like its cousin, the parsnip has been rather neglected by the plant developer. Mr. Burbank has experimented with it to a certain extent, but the demand for the vegetable is not sufficient to justify his giving a great amount of time to it. Some one who cares to make the effort can no doubt improve it in a good many directions.
