A note on Swiss Chard. This is the first time I've ever had Chard. I got yellow and red stem varieties. Coupled with the dark green leaves, it is very beautiful. It is also growing like gangbutsers! Some of the leaves I used last night, were the size of mature catalpa tree leaves!
|Now that's some BIG Swiss Chard!|
I plan next harvest, to use the leafy portions in a green salad, and the stems will get chopped and sauteed in butter and soy sauce. That's how I cook asparagus, and the chard stems are very asparagus-like in flavor and texture.

I must add that I am thrilled with our blueberries! Despite this being their first season in ground, they have all set fruit, and we will get a decent harvest, considering how young the plants are. I hold out hope, that they will all survive, and produce lots of berries in the future. We are just a wee bit fond of blueberries here...!
The fruit trees have all leafed out. One little peach tree, set a ton of fruit in early spring, but we culled it all, so the tree could devote its time to root growth, not fruit growth.
