The greens keep growing!

September 16th, 2016

Dandelion and Swiss Chard are two of my favourite greens to grow as they keep producing until the snow falls. The taste changes slightly for the dandelion but he Swiss Chard maintains its flavour all season. Eating greens everyday beats taking multi vitamins or supplements.

Dandelion is packed with health benefits.  Swiss Chard is perfect for those who do not like the taste of Kale and honestly it is a bit of a Super food. It has been a family favourite for many years!


Since we are eating more processed, white and refined foods adding simple greens like dandelion and Swiss Chard to your daily diet can certainly help detoxify and cleanse the body. Our bodies are constantly being overwhelmed with GMO’s, toxins, pollutants, chemicals, pesticides. Growing these two easy care plants that you can harvest until winter is a great addition to your daily healthy intake.

Living healthy is a long term commitment. Growing local, eating organic and knowing the health benefits of these foods is an easy way to adapt to eating better and being proactive with your lifestyle choices.

Add these two Super Foods to your list for your garden this Spring!
