Yesterday Lucy and I did a little digging in the strawberry patch. I told myself I was only going to grow strawberries in the side garden this year, but the urge to plant more stuff got the better of me. It happens. A lot. 😉
Last year we grew Swiss chard, cabbage, beets and strawberries in the heavily shaded area. Most of the cabbage ended up bolting because the weather was too warm. So this time around I decided to just plant some Swiss chard and a few kale plants in the area.
The Girl LOVES to add Swiss chard and kale in her smoothies and sometimes I’ll chop up the veg really fine and sneak it into our stir fry dinners. But beyond that… the leafy greens usually end up being chicken feed for Mrs. HB’s flock. Which works out for all of us.
Check out the French breakfast radishes we harvested yesterday! Aren’t they beautiful?
Thinly sliced radishes on toasted bread with a little cream cheese. The perfect afternoon snack if you ask me.
Have a great weekend everyone.
