Giant swiss chard from the Choquecancha greenhouse. Now, this photo may not do it justice but this stuff was up to my waist and half my width. Yes, I know I am a short 5’1″ but nonetheless, I’d say that’s one giant chard plant. Looks like beyond organic growing practices can still yield massive and tasty veggies. For a place like Choquecancha that never grew much more than corn, this giant leafy green marks a pretty exciting event for the veggie laden school greenhouse.  Hooray for warm greenhouses and fertile soil!

      Thanks Tyler! It is quite delicious…I may be the most excited one but I also think the students get pretty excited about seeing their first round of personally grown chard thriving 🙂
