carolemaynard I'm crazy for Swiss chard. Better then spinach ( I think) and just keeps on giving. #swisschard#veggie#garden 2w
  •   52flea Looks beautiful! 2w
  •   northcountryclassics Agreedespecially since I'm allergic to spinach. 2w
  •   jillruth I don't think I've ever tried it. You have me curious now. 2w
  •   carolemaynard @jillruth you have to try it. You might still have time to plant some, comes up very fast. These were in plug flats for months but they took great. 2w
  •   idreaminflowers Does it taste like spinach? Never tried it 2w
  •   carolemaynard @mygardenandmore it's maybe more like collards since you always cook it. I will eat the leaves raw when I'm in the garden but the stalk would be too tough. Hope you try it 2w
  •   3martworks Started some from seed this year and it is so good Carole! I just started making smoothies with that and my kale. I add any fruit or a combo of fruit and it is pretty good and blasts belly fat. It works! Hope you guys are having a great summer 2w
  •   carolemaynard @3martworks I'm all for blasting belly fat. I will try it in a smoothy for sure. Summer is going better now that we are closing Monday and Tuesdays. Hope you are enjoying summer too. 2w

carolemaynard Found 13 tomato hornworms. Can't kill them as they turn into sphinx moths so will move them to another spot. Who said gardening was easy ? 1mon
  •   kell_bell18 Yikes! 1mon
  •   donna_reyne Quite bazaar looking. 1mon
  •   carolemaynard @donna_reyne hey Donna if they weren't so darn huge and destructive I'd find them pretty. Call me wacko 1mon
  •   tombstone_510 I just read that orchids rely on these moths. I can see why you can't kill them. I guess you need to have a little #caterpillar farm with tomato plants just for them. 1mon
  •   tombstone_510 Oops! I mean a #hornworm farm 1mon
  •   theoldwhitehouse eeeew 1mon
  •   carolemaynard @tombstone_510 that's good to know. So far we are just finding them on the potted tomatoes in the greenhouse and have moved them to the ones we tossed out in the compost pile. I guess that's our new hornworm farm. 1mon
  •   xctiger382 So good of you to pass this info along! Will not kill if I see them! 2w

carolemaynard I'd be the first to admit I've been a neglectful IGer these days. Also a neglectful photo taker. I had to take a moment to snap a photo of one of my faves. Btw thanks for sticking with me. I hope to return to the land of the living after spring rush is over. Until then enjoy the season 3mon
  •   carolemaynard @pcovi thanks Phyllis i am still kicking. But barely. Hope all is well your way. Happy Memorial Day 3mon

  •   carolemaynard @erinsartandgardens hey Erin happy to see you here. Guess I'm just as bad at Instagram as a am at blogging these days. Waiting for those quieter days to arrive. 3mon
  •   carolemaynard @shanonryan thanks Shanon for thinking of me. I've been so exhausted lately. I miss those quieter days when I had time to Instagram. Hopefully soon but for now off to bed. 3mon

carolemaynard Poor little orphan. Got left in the heated greenhouse too long. Saw it open yesterday. I must have left it there last year so i would plant it in our garden. Will have to figure out its name later. 4mon
