    1. NCmountainwoman-- We just planted a new batch of chard starts. These are plants that over-wintered here. They are hardy, but they are going to seed. Their stalks were so beautiful I just had to photograph them!

    1. CCorax-- Yes! You see the fairy tale forest too. Those yellow and red stalks as big as little trees, they're almost as tall as I am.

    Home grown is always best! Of course I was ONLY talking about veggies...
