Swiss Chard for Spring Planting

By SongofJoy
March 20, 2012

This green leafy vegetable has to be one of my all-time favorites for a number of good reasons. If you've never tried growing it, there's no time like the present. It's perfect for spring planting, amazingly easy to grow, and very resilient.

I like to under plant roses, brugmansias and other flowering bushes that aren't yet in bloom before sping. The brighter, the better when it comes to Swiss chards. Very interesting article, Tee.

It is a beautiful vegetable. And to think it's so good for you. Some plants just know how to earn their keep with flair! Smiling

It's too pretty to eat! I'll bet our bunnies and deer wouldn't think so, though. Grumbling

You're probably right about that, Renee! That's another reason I'm container gardening that one. Green Grin!
