Description
Plain or Common Parsley
Petroselinum crispum

75 days — The plants are erect, about twelve inches tall, and quite vigorous.  The leaves are large, flat, and glossy green. This was the preferred variety in early-1800s Europe.

Parsley has been cultivated and used for centuries. It is used as a flavoring in soups and salads, as a garnish, and some varieties, as a vegetable (see 'Hamburg Rooted').

Herbalists have used it as a breath freshener, digestive aid, and in tea to treat high blood pressure and rheumatism. Because it is high in vitamins A and C, it has also been used as a quinine substitute to treat malaria.

Parsley becomes very bitter as the plant starts to flower. For best germination, freeze seed for three to five days and then soak in warm water for about eight hours before planting. Cover seed lightly. Darkness helps germination.

Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 300 seeds.

If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

Strawberry Companion
I grew this parsley in my strawberry garden in 2013. I read that parsley helps strawberries. I started the seeds inside-parsley is slow to grow and this is the first time I got any to grow! I put them in my strawberry patch in very early spring. They did great all season. I didn't continually pick them like I should've but I will this year and use more for cooking. I had a bumper crop of strawberries and I will continue to plant parsley with my strawberries. I mulched the parsley and the strawberries and gave them extra for the winter. I just checked them in January and yes I still have parsley. Will plant more this year for my other gardens.
