Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard
Posted by Al from New York on 2002-05-18 12:55:19

I traditionally grow swiss chard each year in upstate New York. This past year I didn't get the chance to turn over the garden as I usually do and thus left the rows of chard untouched. This Spring much to my suprise, I found that the chard over wintered and is happily growing again. Is this normal for chard?

    Yes this is quite normal, the chard will go bolt and go to seed.
