Look At My Garden Grow

Here are some photos of the vegetables in the garden starting to break through the ground.

Lettuce 

Swiss Chard 
Funny story about chard, my parents and my older Blake are about the only people in our family who eat chard. The rest of us don't touch it. A few years ago my Mom prepared chard for dinner. My parents and Blake were enjoying it until Blake when to go take a bite of his chard and found a big old snail nestled right in between to pieces. Mom was confused as to how it got there since she said she rinsed the chard off. Needless to say every time Blake eats chard we ask him if he would like some snail with his. :)

Golden potatoes

Blue Potatoes
I am not too sure about these blue potatoes. I don't know how I feel about a blue mound of mashed potatoes on my plate with brown gravy. Just doesn't seem right.

Our garden seems like it survived the snow storm yesterday and the cold temperatures last night so hopefully we start to see a lot more progress soon.
