chard


Chard is a 'looker' and an easy vegetable to grow.
Sown in the spring, traditional chard and its colourful cousin ruby chard, provide good ground cover and delicious stems and leaves for stir frying or use where spinach is called for.
They take very little care and seem unattractive to slugs and caterpillars
Today we picked a big bunch of the glossy leaves. So fresh that their leaves squeaked as they were touched.

Stir fried with garlic and onion and a little balsamic vinegar.
