Harvest Monday in Adelaide



While housesitter B is enjoying the spoils of the balcony garden I am here in Adelaide making do with the treasures in my parent's garden. Not that I am without a harvest. There is chard, chard and more chard. Red stemmed chard,



Yellow stemmed and curly chard,



And the most pretty of them all, orangey stemmed chard.



All chardy and all utterly delicious. And still so much of it left to eat. We eat a bit of this steamed almost every night and yet it never seems to deplete. Yay for parents and their gardens. If you want to see posts with different veggies head on over to Daphne's Dandelions for all the harvest news.

I'm at my parents house at the moment too, but on the other side of the world. Lovely chard!

That is some beautiful chard! Nothing wrong with lots of greens, I say.

Nice chard for a balcony garden - for that matter, a earth garden too.

That is some nice looking chard. It really does seem to grow faster then you can pick it.... I should have some for dinner tomorrow :-)

I love chard for just that reason. It never quits. It just goes on and on. I do need more plants next year though. At least twice as many. I need to freeze more for winter.

That orangey chard looks really beautiful, do you know hoe that variety is called?
