Piles of green

In April I do not believe it's possible to have too many greens in the garden...or that we couldn't feasibly handle EATING all of greens in our garden.  And then May hits.  We are drowning in greens!!!  Spinach, swiss chard, kale!  (My list fails to account for the arugula and mustard greens already gone to seed.)  Yesterday I cut half of our spinach down, filled two big bags, AND turned all of it into one relatively small quartsize bag of sauteed green--now frozen and ready for lasagne or soup come whenever we should need frozen spinach again.

The semester is over too--I'm deeply happy to have space in my head again for posting.

Those are gorgeous. When did you plant them?

Melissa, We planted these...I want to see in March. I could be wrong though...it's been a good chunk of time.
