At last - the Fete

Our School Fete is on this Sunday, 16th October.  Here are some of the plants I potted up for the garden stall...
and here are the plants we set up today...there are more to come.

If you are in the area don't miss it...there are some bargains to be had.  There are loads of $1 and $2 pots, roses, heritage apples, berries, herbs, perennials, succulents, you name it.
WOOLSTHORPE PRIMARY SCHOOL, Woolsthorpe, Victoria from 10am.  15 minutes north of Warrnambool.

Enough of the plug.  Look at my lovely rainbow chard (or silverbeet)...

If there is one vegetable you should grow, this is it.  It is almost impossible to kill and lasts for ages.  I usually just pan fry it with some olive oil, garlic and lemon juice, maybe with a splash of sherry vinegar or vinocotto.  I cut the stalks off and put them in first then add the chopped leaves and bung on the lid until it has wilted nicely. 
Pile it in, it shrinks down to nothing
 Finish with a grating of parmesan.
