My garden has certainly come a long way from just a month ago when I first posted pictures of it. I'm doing my best to keep weeds out, but I've not been very successful at keeping the bugs out. So far everything seems to be fairing well despite the extra residents.
I've used spinach in a few recipes and it was a lot more bitter than the store-bought kind-but also a lot cheaper and more convenient! I made this swiss chard recipe for dinner the other night and it was so good! Fifteen-minute old chard is worlds better than week-old (or longer) chard you buy at the store. I'm hoping to start throwing these greens in smoothies and eat them for breakfast (Shhh...don't tell Ben!)
