My two year old
New Zealand chards continue to give me a few leaves every harvest
cycle. Probably they would be a lot bigger if I'd have fertilized
them early in life, but even so they are a plus to have around.
Not big producers, but then they aren't big plants. Steady and
reliable though. Taste great in soups!
That potato is a volunteer. Thank you food for choosing to grow in
my plot. Your roots will be eaten after you die back.
My grapes are coming out again!
All the chard plants I started last year are doing well. They are
easily four or five times the size of their older cousins. Since
their breed was billed as "Bright Lights", I still like another
chance to tell someone else "The power company has nothing to do
with the bright lights in my plot."
As I type this, a couple of weeks
after these pictures were taken, most of these beets have been
harvested and eaten. I got a couple of meals a week out of them
all winter long. Definitely planting beets again next winter!
That "fava bush" is an array of fava
beans I planted there. I like how they are taking over the area so
Those Irises put up big purple and
white flowers that are very pretty.
Lately a number of my fellow
gardeners have been telling me they enjoy looking at my plot. It
really does have a bunch of nice plants in it.
