I never noticed what our borage was doing - next plot visit i must look
Chard looks good. Mine is almost eaten down (by us). Plenty of Spindle berries in the hedgerows.
Your borage is doing really well, do you save seed from it?I got hold of a copy of the James Wong book that you recommended Elaine - it's really good. So many new things to try growing, my seed shopping list for next year has doubled in length! Thanks for suggesting the book!
There is no need for me to save seed and it seeds pretty well without me. Glad you are enjoying The Homegrown Revolution I have already bought some of his recommended varieties - he has brought a range out with Suttons Seeds.
Striking colour from the chard Elaine. I'm intrigued as to what might be growing under the hooped cover to its side :)

I love to see colour in the vegie patch, I have grown rainbow chard, so pinks, reds, yellows and whites. I like to mix flowers in amongst the vegies, to attract bees, great to let a few things go to seed too. Lovely of you to share your English garden with us the other side of the world :)
Very nice colour all round, especially in this drab month of the year. Chard is on my list for next year.
If I had the space, I would grow chard just for its looks in the veg garden. Even though we don't tend to eat it!
I sowed some chard seed which never germinated so I'll be trying again next year. The borage just appears every year. Flighty xx
The red stems of the Ruby Chard look great in the garden!
I don't have any chard this year, but I'll definitely be growing it again next year. The colour really brightens up the veg patch.
