Celebrating the first of summer, ☀️ together, on the deck as the evening cools off, with a round of homemade snow cones. I’m not quite sure how it happened, or when. I think the best traditions just sort of secretly sneak in, you know? Nobody can quite remember when we didn’t have snow cones to celebrate the first weekend of summer. .

Thankfully, there is no way to get around homemade syrups — syrups of sorts because really just whatever summer fruit you have on hand (strawberries this time) smashed & sweetened with honey or lightly diluted & infused honey itself or even juice will do in a pinch (like this one in Julius fashion, orange with vanilla & cream). — I’ve had the snow cone maker for over 9 years and if you have a chance, pick one up! It’s frivolous & not for those with a practical mind, but your children will forever thank you, it’s absolutely thrilling to push the top and have shaved ice victoriously shoot out the front ..

We have our WATCH BIRD, Mr. Pinkie, watching over our chard. Peppermint and Bright Lights are the two varieties we grow most. You can add chard to almost any meal: salads, soups, stir fry, smoothies, and hummus!

According to healthline.com
Just 1 cup (175 grams) of cooked Swiss chard packs (3):

Calories: 35
Protein: 3.3 grams
Carbs: 7 grams
Fiber: 3.7 grams
Vitamin A: 214% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)
Vitamin C: 53% of the RDI
Vitamin E: 17% of the RDI
Vitamin K: 716% of the RDI
Calcium: 10% of the RDI
Copper: 14% of the RDI
Magnesium: 38% of the RDI
Manganese: 29% of the RDI
Iron: 22% of the RDI
Potassium: 27% of the RDI
As you can see, a small serving of cooked Swiss chard covers your daily need for vitamins A and K and nearly fulfills the RDI for vitamin C.

Gardens exist in such beautiful harmony. All they require is soil that provides strength and support, fresh water & love. We should be more like gardens. Imagine what we could grow.  #thedeliciousdessert #mondaymotivation #benationalbeunited #missgayunitedstatesatlarge2018 #howdoesyourgardengrow 👗: @retrovixenkc 💐: @unitytemplekc 📸: @candicemariekc 💎 : @d.koidesign
