Swiss chard

I've grown what I thought was OK Swiss chard in the past. Certainly, I've managed to enjoy the harvest enough to post about it.

But this year's cool spring and abundant rain has produced leafy robust red chard that's been amazing.  Now maybe the extra mushroom compost (the real thing) along with fresh doses of organic fertilizer have helped, too.

But, transplants from seeds this winter that I moved around to various spots in my raised beds have been remarkably productive.

This was just a quick cutting for tonight's dinner!

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
