Galveston County Master Gardener volunteers gather every Thursday to perform maintenance activities at the Discovery Garden located in Carbide Park. They also harvested a bounty of assorted greens. I captured the photo accompanying this article on that day.
Over the weekend, I harvested some kale and Swiss chard. I was anticipating the delightful taste of these two freshly harvested winter greens. I was not disappointed, and the harvest and evening meal brought back memories of growing up on a family farm. Greens were a tasty and extremely nutritious staple at our Sunday dinners when I was kid.
