Ooh, fresh spinach -- I'll devour it in salads or sauteed.

Best spinach I've ever had was at Maggiano's in Chicago -- they flash-sauteed it in some extra-virgin olive oil and a couple of cloves of fresh garlic. Not cooked enough to wilt, but just warm through with the garlic. There were 8 of us at the table, and we actually fought over the spinach, and left a piece of the salmon that was sitting on it laying on the platter. The salmon was good, too, but wow, the spinach. Whodathunkit?

It appears that one of the two squares of swiss chard I planted last year and that were buried under 18" of snow for about 4 weeks has made it through, I will do more to protect through next winter.. Look forward to harvesting soon. For the fall I will start a second square.

Swiss chard is actually very versatile. I was reading about it on the National Gardening Assoc. site and the
article said it's basically it's a bulb-less beet. All the nourishment
goes to the top. I am looking forward to having it in my SFG this year! Check these recipes out for just the stems...make my mouth water just looking at that picture!

Thanks for the recipe. Since no one in my family has ever eaten chard before and I'm planning to grow it, I need a couple of recipes to try.
Thanks again.

Wait, beets make you burp?

Edit, edit, edit ....I guess that once I proof-read, I realize that burping in not what happens when beets are eaten.

If you can get some rookworst, you should really try it... although it's best eaten when it's really cold outside (after having been ice skating all afternoon or so), so better postpone it till next winter... for now I'd like some higher temperatures!

How exactly do you thin swiss chard seedlings? Since the seed pods actually contain several individual seeds, do you thin them all down to one? I've tried to look it up, but I'm still not completely sure...
I'd sure appreciate some advice. Mine have gone crazy and I want my chard to grow well.
Thanks! Swiss chard seeds in the ground today:  PIC! - Page 2 Icon_biggrin

Swiss chard seeds in the ground today:  PIC! - Page 2 Empty I've got mine in the garden

Post  quiltbea on 4/16/2010, 12:55 pm

I know it's early in the season here in Maine, zone 5a, but I had to get a few things in this week. At nite I cover them with heavy row cover that protects down to 28 degrees so I'm within the numbers with eves being in the low to mid 30s. The days are from 40s to 60s so they are getting some warmth as well.

Here's mine in two squares. The larger one I bought at the local Lowe's this week, the smaller ones are Bright Lights chard I started myself indodors.
I hope to get some sidedishes here for my family.
I understand if you are going to cut the whole plant out about an inch from the soil, it needs less space and will regrow.
If you are going to harvest by taking the outer leaves when they are around 4-5" big, then you need to put them in a square by themselves because they take more room.
I'll try both ways to see what works best for us.
