Start Growing Parsley
Though parsley is in the same plant family as carrots, keeping the roots untouched isn’t necessary for the plant. This means it can be grown indoors and transplanted outside once the weather gets above freezing. Whether you choose to plant transplants or direct sow your seeds depend on the climate conditions that you are growing in and the length of your summer season.
