Swiss Chard from the Fall/Winter Garden
Without turning this into a motivational post, growing has become an important part of my life recently. Primarily, my focus has been on making sure I can grow things if necessary in a financial crash. BBQ chips aren’t going to sustain me. Tacos may (healthy ones, at least). I now fully understand the kale thing. Kale grows like a weed. It is so unappetizing that even bugs don’t like it. It has vitamins. I’ll stick to chard when I can. When I was a kid, brussels sprouts and okra were gross. Now, they are much better than kale. I filled a gallon Ziploc with the kale I didn’t really have to do anything with other than throw seed in the ground. If only tomatoes were this easy.
