My challenge in maintaining this even into the third installment of the series is that I didn’t find much a mystery in my CSA share this past go-round. Most of the usual suspects emerged in my ‘basket’ — and looking at them, I didn’t think I could fairly be true to the intent of this series by focusing on chard this week … though I know for many it may well be a mystery what to do with chard that makes it taste ‘good.’ The truth is, I love the taste of chard and so will be eating it tonight as I re-experience one of my successes of last year: Farfalloni with Grilled Chicken and Swiss Chard. Check it out if you’re looking for ideas.
Instead, this week, I looked for a mystery closer to hand: a plant growing in my own garden. After all, it’s pretty close to be community supported agriculture as the stuff I buy and it doesn’t get more local or organic that my yard. And, yes, I do know what I planted there, so it isn’t a mystery to me: the question is, do you what this plant is? I’ve given you a few angles to make it more fair …. Don’t get distracted by the tomato plants in the background or the thyme in the foreground.
See you back here in a few days for the big reveal (here).
