Chicks and Greens (March 3 Garden Project)

May 10, 2010

It was a beautiful day in the garden yesterday.  I rigged three rain barrels and puttered about.  Mostly I took pictures and harvested tons of greens for a delicious salad!

Chicken or raptor? Mrs. Leghorn to you!

This is 'n Biscuit, a very stylish Araucana

This is Couch, a rare breed Dominique. Or is that Potato? Not sure.

Forellenschluss (aka Trout Back) lettuce

Tatsoi, yum!

Chicory

    Wow!! The garden is looking great. It seems like it’s grown a lot since I was there a week ago. Beautiful photos!

      No Michelle, this is all in my friend Ellen’s backyard. She has offered up her yard to shared gardening and there are four of us working on it together.
