And barely a taste it will be, but I can hardly wait to savour the little bouquet of Swiss chard I thinned from its planter. I think I’ll just steam it for a moment, it’s so tender. There’s about twice as much as is shown in this bunch.
We, here on the east coast, have been bemoaning the wretched, wet weather we’ve been having for weeks now. I’ve never seen a summer like it! However — and I hesitate to mention it lest I should jinx things — we’re supposed to have SEVERAL DAYS of beautiful sun and clearer air this week! Our plants won’t know what to do! Hopefully, they dry out a bit. The one thing that has thrived in all this moisture are the tomato plants, and for some reason, they’ve really taken off. So, we’ll wait and see what the sun brings. :)
