I was tempted to leave the chard in the garden for the winter. It’s mild enough here that chard is considered a winter crop by most people, not a summer crop.
I prefer it in summer when the leaves are more tender. They tend to get thick and a bit tough as the weather cools and the plants get bigger.… Continue reading.....
This is another quiche with a shredded potato crust… Our new favorite and so easy.
Thin turkey cutlets cook quickly making the prep fast and easy.

The following year I ordered seeds from on online … Continue reading.....

In the winter I will buy a cauliflower and some carrots and a few sunchokes and we have our vegetables for the week. That will give us a reasonable serving for each dinner.
In the summer it starts with a handful of green beans every other day, a few chard leaves and the … Continue reading.....
