After traveling this past weekend, I was glad to spend some time in the garden yesterday. It’s amazing to me just how relaxing piddling around is the garden is to me.
Our Swiss Chard and kale are still growing well and have not gotten bitter yet. We’re enjoying them several times a week either sauteed, in soups or in eggs. We’re also still harvesting beets. My favorite way to eat beets is to grate them and put them in a salad.
I found this beet hiding in the Swiss Chard. I’ve been clipping the leaves thinking it was chard…oops.
When Benjamin saw it he said, “Let’s take a picture of it. It’s the biggest beet I’ve ever harvested.” Well, he was there a few minutes after I pulled it up…I guess for an 11 year old that counts as harvesting it.
This is what my dish drainer is looking like each day. I’m going to have to rename it the dish and vegetable strainer. We picked our first green beans of the season. We’re pretty excited about that.
