    Saturday I harvested green beans, celery, squash, one lone tomato, swiss chard, cucumbers, and the last of the cauliflower. One of the hardest parts of growing things is saying goodbye to a plant. Most are easy to pull – when the harvest is over, but my celery just kept on growing! I didn’t realize it […]

  • Swiss chard: harvest, wait ten days, repeat…

    April 5th, 2013 | My Garden, My Harvests, Swiss Chard | Melanie | 2 Comments

    I planted swiss chard from seed in my winter garden and it is fairly low maintenance. I don’t harvest it as much as I could, I just grow a lot of greens and need to give more away. A small garden can produce a lot of greens! I harvest on March 25th and noticed yesterday […]

    I harvested a bunch of greens back on this date. I have been making green smoothies and as wonderful as it is to have fresh greens in the mornings, I have been in a rush to pick greens and wash and use them before being late to school. So lazy I know. About a week […]

    I love to drink these smoothies for breakfast. Some of the benefits of drinking green smoothies is that I don’t want to eat junk food, have more energy and my skin is healthier. I first got started drinking green smoothies when my sister invited me to hear The Green Smoothie Girl speak at an event. […]

  • Carrots, Swiss chard and kale

    This bed is so pretty and is doing great. My tubs are just 8 inches deep so I am not sure how long the carrots will get or when to harvest them. It is always a learning process but tons of fun. The swiss chard is great in salads and smoothies and of course the […]
