Wednesday Farm Photo: Spring Garden Greens

Arugula & Baby Swiss Chard In The Homemade Greenhouse

It's spring salad season - and it's not too late to plant! Did you know you can go from seed to salad bowl in less than a month no matter where you live? Just check out these links on my kitchen garden blog:

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where one of us loves lettuce a lot more than normal people (and even eats it for breakfast) - yet somehow never got around to planting any this spring (and is blaming it on lambing season). Thank goodness for Swiss chard and arugula!


  1. Beautiful picture of arugula and swiss chard. I have my seeds all ready, but considering that the snow hasn't disappeared yet I think it is going to be a while before I have greens. I'll just enjoy yours vicariously for now.

  2. That looks DELICIOUS! Man, I am jonesing for some fresh organic greens.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
