|View of the stems, my favorite part of the chard!|
|Don't throw the stems away! Unlike some cooking greens, the stems of chard are delicious and tender!|
|The chard box AFTER we harvested our dinner... still plenty left!|
If you are like me and want cool new stuff to look forward to from the garden even in the fall, try collards and kale (which I am planting as soon as the broccoli is done). Kale is delicious sauteed with a little olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper (just remove the stems!), is tough as nails, and has the added benefit of being just about the healthiest thing you can eat.
Until next time, happy gardening!
