Salzer’s 1915 catalog opines, “Swiss chard produces more food for the table than almost any other vegetable and it also requires less care; it yields a constant crop from July to winter.” Plants will grow quite large. Space according to use can be closer together for baby leaf harvest. Soften thick ribs of chard, beets and other greens by braising.
