when it all boils down

May 23, 2010


To say that Mom’s garden is impressive is decidedly understating the reality: it is, in fact, an amazing array of vegetables and herbs that far exceeds the norm for regional growth. And so it is in no way the fault of the harvest that our dinner greens this evening were a meager affair; rather, my own lack of expertise in gardening is the problem. What I thought was a large bundle of carefully-chosen Swiss Chard stalks boiled down to the equivalent of approximately 1 Tablespoon per person, for of the three of us dining tonight. Ah well–I know better for next time. And thankfully, 20-some-odd brimming bundles remain in the rows from which I gleaned tonight’s portion :-)
