Chard

descriptionPlanting DatesvarietiesNutritionPDF

celery Swiss Chard is one of the best leafy green crops for our area because it is not only drought tolerant, but is also heat tolerant. It will go through a hot summer if spring planted and watered well. It is easy to grow from seed and leaves can be harvested in about 60 days. Like beet seed, chard also has a multiple seed ball so thin early and use the little plants in salad mix. Mature plants are large in diameter and need space. Plant seed 1?2 inch deep in rows 18 - 20 inches apart or start transplants set in the beds 18 inches apart on drip tape.
