Here are some highlights,
This strawberry tower made from a plastic
The center core of rocks keeps air moving
and allows easy watering.
Raised bed of peas and swiss chard.
I will be cooking some of this!
There are lots of lovely flowers, with roses being a favorite. Not surprising as this is Portland, the city of roses and the rose festival.
We have had a lot of rain in our area, but they are out there when ever possible. One of the gardeners use to have her own small gardening service, you may remember her.
Let's make some dinner,
Garden Harvest Swiss Chard
by the seat of my pants!
1 bunch of Swiss Chard
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
4 green onions, sliced or 1 thick slice of regular onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
sea salt and fresh pepper
De-rib the chard. Cut ribs in thin slices, and green leaves in 1' squares (I prefer square pieces to shreds)
Saute the ribs, red pepper, onions and garlic in olive oil. When fragrant, add the green leaves and 1 T water. Cover and let steam 2-3 minutes.
Remove cover, turn up the burner to cook off any excess liquid and serve immediately with salt and pepper.
As always, thank for taking a moment to stop and say hello.
I appreciate your time and your comments.
