Death of Chard - Goodbye to 2010
I'll admit these Swiss chard plants look pretty sorry, but then again, it is to be expected this late in the year and at this stage of their growth. You see, these plants have been growing now for at least 18 months. I started them during the summer of 2009 and overwintered them underneath one of my hoops. To my surprise, they decided not to bolt this past summer, but instead provided us with more greens then we could have possibly eaten until very recently. In some ways, I feel like I'm saying goodbye to two dear old friends. I guess it's only fitting that they should meet their demise just as the year winds down to a close.
Have a wonder New Year's Eve everyone! Let's toast to a productive 2010 and hope for bountiful 2011.
