OH definitely a member of 'It seemed like a good idea at the time..."
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.

Hilarious! Hilarious! It's a good thing we can laugh at ourselves, particularly as gardeners.

Mother Nature often has a wild sense of humor at we mere mortal's expense.

I've got 4 of these tubs going with two different kinds of chard in them.

Aw, que cute! Like bonsai chard. Hilarious!
I'll have to go get a picture of my monsters, which are now bolting. I'm going to let them set seed.

YS...really attractive with all of the colors of the stems and the companion plantings. I remember a woman on DG had chard all over her garden...from a bolted plant...and hadn't a clue that she actually could feed the Chinese Army with them....didn't know they are edible. I tip my hat to you.

I was late in planting these. I suspect they will get a fair amount bigger.

Thanks, Carol. The other is Fordhook. I have grown them both before.

Was just outside thinning some lettuces.

Carol, I was over on DG last night and came across a post from you where you were recommending using Imidocloprid as an insecticide. Do you use that on your edibles too?

Stormy...no...if the vegies get bugs I try to stay away from anything. I would use it on blueberries when not fruiting....Imidocloprid doesn't seem to migrate out to blossoms and fruit....but it would stay in the leaves....

They have been growing gangbusters. I need to start eating them faster. I wish that soup weather and leafy veggie harvest were more in synch timewise.
