Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Fall Kitchen Garden - its all about the greens.

Its all about the greens this fall.



I'm thrilled that my kitchen garden, just steps from the door, worked out. I have lots of kale and swiss chard within easy access.


And I think its kind of pretty with all the colors. That's purple basil in the front left and a butternut squash on the right under a jungle of swiss chard.

I've been sauteing bacon and greens for breakfast - topped with an egg and finished with grated cheese. Its a great meal that I'll be enjoying all fall. Along with some baked applesauce, of course.

Hey Mr. H! Yep its a breeze to step out for herbs and such. I ripped up some "yard" to put in the kitchen garden.. but who am I kidding? No grass! More garden! Isn't that we we gardeners do? Whoot!

That breakfast sounds great!
Beautiful pictures of your kitchen garden. My garden is miles away from my kitchen, but it works somehow...
