Smuckers, Move Over!
We enjoyed a new pizza this week using Swiss Chard from the garden - I'm studying gardening blogs and will add this recipe to the repertoire. I'm not sure how much just plain steamed Swiss Chard I'd want to consume this summer - and the four foot long row seems prepared to keep us in greens all season.
The Farmer's Market has started up and I've purchased scallions, asparagus, strawberries and green beans. I quite happily walked right on by the lettuce the other day - selling for $2 a bunch. We're eating lettuce frequently in salads and Paul puts it on his sandwich every day. I 've lost count of the number of bags I've given away, though when I offered some to our neighbor he smiled, and said, "I'm no rabbit!" Even so, I've saved multiple two dollars's already this summer! It's a blessing how God can take a tiny seed, add water and sunshine and make things grow.
