Beautiful Greens

I think my friends all know how much I love greens.  This spring, I have grown the
most lovely and tasty salad greens ever!  Arugula, freckles lettuce, redbor kale, bright
lights Swiss chard and Bibb lettuce.  I don't know if it is this combination, good weather 
or the new raised beds I planted in, but I am delighted!  Due to renovating the garden,
however, I planted late, so these greens won't last too much longer (the arugula is already 
starting to bolt- one trick is to let it bolt, and flop down, and it will produce fresh green 
leaves in the fall).
Happy gardening!
