Chard

Beta vulgaris, cicla group
Start indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Can also be direct seeded in mid-spring thru early summer. Chard does best in cool conditions but will tolerate some heat. Sow 1.5 cm deep and aim for a plant every 10 to 15 cm for bunching. Closer spacing is better for baby greens. Cut leaves and allow plants to regrow for continuous harvest.

The tenderest chard we have grown. Light green leaves have less fibre than other chards so they are great in salads even past the baby leaf stage. A farm favorite.
