Swiss Chard - bugs love organic greens, especially the chard
Basil - hoping the seeds mature before frost
Lettuce - thinnings for the salad bowl
Basil - for the freezer
The summer garden was a failure. We are thankful for our fallback plan: the grocery store. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. To date, the fall garden is growing nicely. Except the Swiss Chard. The bugs have a love affair with the chard, entire plants suddenly disappearing. Consumed so ravenously I can only find a quarter inch of red stalk pressed down into the dirt. I am incredibly grateful for the fallback.
