Swiss Chard Charm

Spring planted Swiss Chard!  It was an excellent season for leafy greens.  They won't be missed for long, more plants are seeded.  Swiss chard can take the heat so I grow it all summer and use it like cut and come again lettuce.  Check out "Bright Lights," "Golden," "Peppermint" or "Electric Neon Blend" for some color pop and flavor. Baby leaf chard is ready in just 28 days or wait for the bunch in 55 days.  We steam it lightly then sprinkle with a nice balsamic vinegar.  Swiss chard is chock full of antioxidants, right up there with spinach... makes you nice and strong.
