Green Thumb Sunday, First Snow

Sunday, December 09, 2007
Wednesday brought us the season's first snowfall here -- nearly four inches. Wrapped in a white crystalline blanket, the chard in the garden still looked delicious to me. It would look even better in a steaming bowl of hot soup, though, wouldn't it?

Gardeners, plant and nature lovers share their photos on Green Thumb Sunday. See who else is participating.

For some reason, chard never appears as tough to me as it really is. Look at that golden trooper, shoving its powerful leaves up through the snow! Thank you for reminding me how strong this pretty, yummy plant is.

Chard in soup does sound good. That's given me an urge to make a pot of soup this afternoon! Happy GTS,

Oh, you have a carpet of snow in your garden wonderful.. and if you are lucky you might have a white christmas then..... and the snow will protect your plants from the cold and frost. At the moment we are lucky here in nothern Germany and don´t have frost here and even the sun comes out every now and then!
Have a nice GTS

Yes -- it would absolutely be delicious in soup! I am such a fan of chard -- I definitely want to plan to grow some next year.

What a powerful image of resilience. I have never eaten chard. I don't think we grow it in the Tropics so this is a doubly exotic post for me, snow and chard!
Beautiful photo.
Thanks for sharing,
