Don't overlook Swiss chard

When you think of summer produce, which vegetable or fruit first comes to mind? Corn? Watermelon? Tomatoes?

I'd wager that Swiss chard isn't anywhere in your top 10 ... or even your top 20.
Swiss chard zipped across my radar when my CSA (community supported agriculture) box arrived the other week. Inside was a big bag filled with chard and all its colorful stems; yellow, pale green, magenta and red. Chard's leaves look like spinach, only larger.

It was a new beginning for all of us.

Embarrassing itch requires super-sleuthing

Q. I have been experiencing an embarrassing anal itch for two months. My physician doesn't seem interested beyond prescribing lotions that don't do much after the first few minutes.
