Ruby Chard

Chard is one of those great cut-and-come-again greens.  Remove outer leaves, avoiding the growing center, and the plant seems to last forever.

This is the first time I've planted it so I don't know when it will bolt, or die, or be attacked by summer bugs.

I read in another gardening blog that in their mild-ish, northern-ish climate, chard just goes on and on.  We'll see what it does here.

  1. That's a pretty pict.. I'm gardening in the Dallas area, & I grew a Perpetual Swiss Chard plant, that just kept on growing & giving for 3 years! Finally the heat this year did it in.. It had some afternoon shade & plenty of compost that really kept it going..
