There is a garden where I work. It is an "experimental" garden in the eyes of the gardeners. But it is lovely. I have the pleasure of going each day and taking a peek. There might be a change in what is now sprouted up or what is being harvested.
Here are some highlights,
This strawberry tower made from a plastic garbage can.
The center core of rocks keeps air moving and allows easy watering.
Raised bed of peas and swiss chard.
There are lots of lovely flowers, with roses being a favorite. Not surprising as this is Portland, the city of roses and the rose festival.
We have had a lot of rain in our area, but they are out there when ever possible. One of the gardeners use to have her own small gardening service, you may remember her.
Let's make some dinner,
Garden Harvest Swiss Chard
by the seat of my pants!
1 bunch of Swiss Chard
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
4 green onions, sliced or 1 thick slice of regular onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
sea salt and fresh pepper
De-rib the chard. Cut ribs in thin slices, and green leaves in 1' squares (I prefer square pieces to shreds)
Saute the ribs, red pepper, onions and garlic in olive oil. When fragrant, add the green leaves and 1 T water. Cover and let steam 2-3 minutes.
