Taste the Rainbow - Literally!

I LOVE color!!!  Almost everything I'm growing in the garden I grown first for taste and second for color.  Since I have the choice - why not?  This beautiful swiss chard was just cut this morning and will be perfect in my evening dinner.  Sauteed with garlic I will serve this over Parmesan polenta with some bacon and a poached egg.  I can't wait!

  1. That is the most lovely swiss chard I've ever seen. I thought it was only green! What variety are they? Do they taste sweeter than the green?

  4. Chard is kind of like a more earthy spicy spinach... I highly recommend trying it!
