Swiss Chard not just for the Swiss

Aug 09, 2010

My family and I have arrived safely in Belgium and the other day we went to neighbor's house to harvest her garden while she's away on vacation for the week...with her consent of course! It's been a dry summer in much of Europe, but gardens are holding up. This photo shows my mother-in-law, Ginette, harvesting Swiss chard (which the Belgians call "bettes") which we steamed for lunch that day with mustard sauce.
