Day 84–Beautiful Swiss Chard

20120323-142129.jpg

Some vegetables are so lovely that they are almost ornamental in the garden (and on your plate). Bright Lights swiss chard is dazzling to look at in the garden with its stalks of fushia, neon yellow, bright green and ruby red. In the late winter garden, when everything looks so brown, chard adds some visual happiness to the landscape. It’s also a super healthy and delicious addition to our diet.

This is one of our famer’s market finds this week! Happy market shopping!

  1. Your description actually makes me want to eat a vegetable. I am disgusted with myself 😉
    Looks so fresh and crispy 😀
