In 2013, I bought one random green Swiss chard plant at the greenhouse and planted it in the spring, and it did so well that I regretted not buying more. Because of that, I started a bunch of Swiss chard from seed during the summer. It took awhile to get going, but ended up being really pretty. That second chard planting was ‘Five Color Silverbeet’ also known as Rainbow Chard. That’s what’s shown in most of the photos below. Follow this link to read all my blog posts about chard.
