We eat it by the ton, Toto. But the Bok choy has gone to flower, couldn't eat that fast enough and none of our neighbours want any. Anyway, the flowers are pretty.

You'll need to get into training for next year. Can't waste all that good food.

The chard kept going right through October, and we still pulled leeks at the end of November. BTW, not quite sure why this photo is featured on "beets"... I know the leaves look somewhat similar...

LOL, thanks for the kind comments! Wish we could still pull some of this - I have some in the freezer, but it's best fresh. It's buried deep in the snow now.
No idea what's for supper - Patrick is cooking these days as I have a major piece of work underway. Toto - you can see I'm still wielding my stick and making him do everything - thought you'd like to know. :)

terrific photo of a subject dear to my heart, veg growing, & swiss chard is a firm favourite with all the family plus its so ornamental so gives me the excuse to photograph it ( not that I need any encouragement )
