Anyone for chard?

by jill
now it's growingAnother month on with the plot and everything seems to be having so much fun growing! Or more accurately, the plants are lapping up all the rain we’ve been having. This photo is pretty much from the same place as the last one, still kale (and chard) in the foreground, potatoes to the left, the beans have run all the way up their teepee already and the cucumbers are halfway up their trellis. Behind them we have all the stakes in for the tomatoes and they are starting to weave their way upwards. We’re already overwhelmed by the amount of chard – been eating it for a few weeks already and now we are taking a lot of it out to the food bank (Food Gatherers).
