I am going to update on the fall crops over the next week or so in stages so please keep checking in. Today's post will be devoted entirely to the fall crops that Daphne shared seed for. She shared 'Bright Lights' Chard and Tatsoi and they are both coming into their prime now.
I started these chard plants in the spring and they are just starting to bulk up now. They should be a lot larger but the leaf miner was so bad this year it really set them back. Now that the leaf miner is gone they have really started to grow. I have plans for these, Swiss Chard Risotto and Steamed Chard to name a few.
These three Tatsoi I started in August and it looks like they have been enjoying the cool damp fall weather. I will be harvesting these any day now and it will be my first taste. I grew some this spring but they bolted soon after planting. These will be going into noodle soup and stir fry, probably tomorrow.
