Feasting on color
This time of year it's exciting to consider all the colors in the garden: deep purple eggplants hiding behind gray-green leaves, mottled watermelons angled among vines, yellow sunflower blooms stretching into the sky.
This year we planted rainbow Swiss chard, with bright red, yellow, and orange stalks teasing the eye like a candy-shop window display. And how can so many different colors coexist on the same tomato plant? They'll all turn red eventually and then I'll have to process them, but for now I'm happy to feast my eyes on their luscious colors. Mm-mm good!
