We spent 18 months in the Pacific Northwest in 2005 and 2006, and one of the great joys of the late summer and fall was the abundance of gorgeous produce. Rainbow chard was something I had never heard of before, but as the years have flown by, a greater variety of fruits and vegetables have appeared out here in the desert.
I was stunned by how very beautiful this bunch was as I washed it up for steaming. I didn’t do anything to the picture to enhance those incredible colors. The colors even held up under the onslaught of the steam, albeit a bit faded.
