Now to put my herbal "nerd" on...Parsley is not just a decoration. As a matter of fact, its health benefits outweigh most of the fancy dishes it's used as a garnish on! Crazy, right? I would fill up a page on everything it's good for, including your heart, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as being chock-full of antioxidants to boot. If you can remember that it's rich in vitamins A and C, that should be all the info you need to want to grow, and eat this wonder herb.
