Swiss Chard - Silver
This is a versatile, no waste vegetable. Grow as a salad leaf, or more usually as mature plants for the thick, white juicy stems (chards), which are cut into chunks and boiled, or used to add crunch to stir fries. Prepare the ground by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
Make shallow channels (drills) in the soil 30cm apart. Thin seedlings to 23cm apart. Use the delicious thinnings in salads or stir fries.
