September chard for Foliage Follow-Up

After sulking all summer, my Swiss chard has rebounded.

Right before the rain, I had scattered some cottonseed meal in the bed and topped it off with some compost.

Nitrogen, rainwater and a break from the heat and BOING! Chard's back on the menu. The new leaves are so baby-soft and fresh. What a treat!
