Container garden[ want to grow these]

I remember a long time ago that I had some yellow tomatoes. They are about the size of a baseball and were very tasty.

Been looking around different seed houses online on where I can purchase seeds not normally carried at the garden centers. There are very tasty vegetables available not normally carried at the food markets. So will grow my own.

Have the yellow tomato seeds on my list and also this one that I find very interesting as a compliment to cooking different things [lemon grass]

Another thing I would like to grow is parsnips. I can get parsnips at the market but they are not as tasty as I remember them when I was a kid back on the farm. What we did back then was got them up to mature size just before fall time in NY. We left them in the ground and covered them with leaves to prevent the ground from freezing. It got cold enough under the leaves to turn the ground cold. Left them like that for a few weeks before the snows started. I was told when I was younger the cold reacted to the parsnips to make them sweeter and tastier. Delicious tasting that way.
May take one of the containers and grow some parsnips to full size before cold weather comes here in SC in January and February. The cold weather during those months should season the parsnips. Does not get cold enough here to freeze the ground during those two months. Occasionally sometimes below 32 degrees.
