From garden to table
What happens when you grow to much food?
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
This year I'm on a mission to grow 2,000 pounds of food in my backyard. So far I have grown 49+ pounds of vegetables. This past week I suddenly realized I had grown way to much Rainbow Swiss Chard. Much more than my family could possibly eat.
As I sat at my desk in my home office, I suddenly heard the mail carrier's truck pull into my driveway. I leaped up out of my chair and darted outside.
"Do you like Swiss chard?" I asked
"Would you like some?"
Yada Yada Yada... The mail carrier left with 12 bunches of Rainbow Swiss chard.
Now I don't have to eat anymore Swiss chard!
