Harvest Monday

Not much to harvest today except for some Swiss chard leaves. Thought I’d indulge myself with Swiss Chard Bisque for my troubles. Breakfast was another indulgence: French toast with my home-made dandelion syrup.

Tomatoes are forming on my vines but are not ripening. Not even the tiny Sugar Snacks show any signs of changing color. 

This post is part of Harvest Monday at Daphne’s Dandelions.

    Yum! Swiss Chard Bisque sounds delish!

  2. Dandelion syrup? I’ll have to try that, sounds lovely, especially as Dandelion jelly tastes vaguely of honey, or at least sweet.

    Dandelion syrup…..yum! Do you have a recipe? I made dandelion jelly this year. It was great!

    Swiss Chard Bisque and Dandelion syrup, how creative!

    Wow that recipe looks good! I was reading your previous post – I use FoxFarm ocean forest potting soil and I found I had to add amendments to it too but I thought it was just my hot climate. I found this fertilzer locally http://www.planetnatural.com/site/garden-fertilizer.html – it’s very affordable, doesn’t smell that much, it’s OMRI and it really works.

      Thank you for the fertilizer tip. I do appreciate it. As I say, I’m somewhat surprised because I thought the nutrients came with the potting soil. Oh well, I’m up for adding some if it will boost the harvest!

    The dandelion syrup sounds interesting. I wonder what that tastes like.

    I just love finding new ways to use chard. This is one recipe I will try. I need to wait for a few weeks longer to get a nice chard harvest.

      I made it for lunch today and must say that it was excellent. I was a little short of chard, so I reduced the recipe (I’m just one person, here.). I even threw in a few baby beet leaves as extender. They gave the cream a bit of a hint of pink. But the whole was delicious anyway.

    Swiss chard bisque??? OOOOhhh, that sounds tasty. I’ll have to give that one a try.

    Those both sound delicious! I am bookmarking the syrup recipe, thank you!
