Lots of flowers, only one cuc so far!
With a little bug heart eaten out on the lower leaf. I am an organic gardener.
IMHO swiss chard tastes lke grass, no matter how you prepare it!
I don't think I'll grow it next year.
looks good and healthy (so far!)ReplyDelete
Healthy harvest ahead!ReplyDelete

Wow Karen........your chard looks amazzzzzing!ReplyDelete
Your plants look beautiful. I have never had chard. The cucumber flower is pretty. Great shots, have a happy day!ReplyDelete
This cucumber flower is beautiful, Karen. I wish they lasted longer, but then again, if they did, we wouldn't have cucumber, would we??? :-)ReplyDelete
I'm with you on the Swiss chard. Don't like it at all.
Happy Sunday to you!
I have only a few wee cucumbers but lots of flowers too and yet my friend a few blocks away is already eating cukes!ReplyDelete
Your garden looks so healthy and lovely.ReplyDelete
Yes, Beautiful pictures, gorgeous colors in the flower!ReplyDelete
beautiful photos! love the cucumber flower.ReplyDelete
Beautiful captures of the cucumber flower and the "heart"!ReplyDelete
love the bright yellow flower. the veggie in the second photo looks like "alugbati", also called Malabar spinach here.ReplyDelete
I think the chard looks like it would taste of grass!ReplyDelete
Having said that we have a spinach recipe where the spinach "melts" into a lamb curry - and then even spinach does not taste that bad!!

PS: ankle will keep me off rough ground for at least another two weeks - sad face!
This is one vegie that produces a glowing flower! Love the details of those healthy leaves.ReplyDelete
They will be so fresh and yummy!ReplyDelete
Hope you get more than just one cucumber. :)) I love Swiss chard but I suspect we don't all taste things the same way. Your plants look healthy.ReplyDelete
magnificent macros! I've never tasted chard, and I'm less likely to try it now. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, the cukes will come--in abundance--trust me!ReplyDelete
i got nothing....ReplyDelete
yours looks great!!
Lindas fotos! A primeira é flor de abóbora?ReplyDelete
The answer to your question: How does your garden grow? is Wildly :)
Have anice evening :)
My garden is doing great too. Yours looks very healthy. I have not planted swiss chard for I do not know how to cook it ^_^ Instead I planted broccoli and collard greens and I am loving it. Great shots thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Great pictures. I'll have to get back to growing vegetables. We've certainly got the space.ReplyDelete
Wonderful shots, Karen!! Particularly the big yellow flower of the Bush Cucumber!!ReplyDelete

Wow, your photos are just beautiful! I've enjoyed looking at them. You can bet I'll be back to see more. Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyDelete
Yay for gardens! I love the light.ReplyDelete
What a productive garden you have! Your vegetables look so fresh and healthy. Happy harvesting ahead!ReplyDelete
cucumber flowers are beautiful ones. Nice catch.ReplyDelete
I love cucumbers but didn't grow any this year. We do have lots of tomatoes. Nice shots from your garden.ReplyDelete
Nature has beauty everywhere...lovely photos!ReplyDelete
Your garden makes for beautiful pictures. Someone told me once that Swiss Chard has a nice earthy taste (in other words, it tastes like dirt). I actually don't mind it though. Just stir-fry the tender leaves in oil and butter until they wilt a bit. I also put it in a crustless quiche and we like it. It tastes earthy ;>)))ReplyDelete
Great macro`s. I happen to like our swiss chard! Looking forward to our one and only cucumber.ReplyDelete
