|Chard and Strawberries|
Seem to play together nicely!
I take a leaf from each chard plant about once a week, sometimes cooking it in soup, sometimes eating it raw in salad. The strawberries feed us on a different schedule; I'm looking forward to making a salad with both ingredients.
The economics work out well; the chard came from a packet of seeds, and I could have grown the strawberry from an inexpensive packet of bare roots. In this case, I was impatient and bought a small plant for a few dollars; I don't regret this because we got yummy strawberries within a very short time!
In addition to the food, these plants are nice to look at and a much less work than mowing grass!
