Summer Greens Stir-Fried

I love summer greens, but they are so expensive in the store, and I often question their fresh-ness, so I'm growing a bed of kale and swiss chard, and it is big enough that I'd better start using it, before it totally gets out of control!

So I ventured out into my flooded garden (love that flood irrigation!)

and picked some kale 

and some chard

Made up my stir-fry, and added these greens last, so they just barely got steamed... 

(yes, Mom I washed them first!)

Sooooo yummy!

Did you know that kale is basically just cabbage that doesn't form a head? It grows quickly, is easy to grow, and is so very good!

Guess which component of this stir-fry Eli was willing to eat? If you guessed anything other than chicken, you were totally wrong. 


  1. Looks totally onolicious. I'm gonna plant some spinach this weekend (in a container,of course). Maybe I'll try kale too?

  2. Mmmm! That looks so yummy. I would like to take a bite right out of my computer screen!
