8/365: Swiss Chard

Project 365

Earlier this summer, my herb garden met an early end due to the heat and a hungry caterpillar.  I have since planted Swiss Chard in that pot.  I hear it’s a hearty plant, so I’m enjoying watching it grow!

Part of the goal of this project is to pick one picture everyday.  The above picture is my favorite – I’m loving the idea of negative space lately.  But since I had a hard time deciding, I made a collage, too.  Hopefully I’ll get some yummy salads soon!

P.S. – I’ve thinned the plants a couple times (especially the struggling plants in the back), but I’m not sure exactly how far to go.  To any Swiss Chard experts out there, advice is always appreciated…
