Greens in garden

We have green cabbage, napa cabbage, swiss chard, and mustard greens just to name a few things in our green arsenal this fall.

This was our first time eating & growing Napa cabbage it’s a different type of cabbage. We made cabbage rolls with part of it and roasted the rest in the oven with olive oil and red pepper. It’s a stringy cabbage compared to the regular cabbage.

I love eating regular cabbage raw with salt on it but not the Napa the texture is to different. Its more soft like a lettuce and its curly leafed.

Jack has decided he would like to try and find a few neighbors who want to share in the work and share the yield of our garden. Kind of like a neighborhood garden but with fewer people.

He truly enjoys the garden and we are still planting in the ground, several different types of raised beds and buckets.

Here are a few pictures first up is regular cabbage as you can see the leaves are starting to turn in a make a head. Then there are mustard greens and swiss chard.

Life is green right now at The Lira Gardens.

    1. We love swiss chard. We are growing it in a raised garden. I like the fact you can cut it and it comes back and continues to make more.
