Growing Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard is easy to grow. Plant the seeds in the spring and harvest anytime, from baby leaves for salad to larger leaves for cooking. Burpee's carries 'Bright Lights', a packet containing several colors. You can also purchas 'Rhubarb Chard' that has crimson stalks and glossy green, crinkled leaves, or 'Fordhook Giant' with dark green, thick, tender leaves.
