Sometimes my chards do that, too. Some make it and some don't. That's why I over plant them. I wouldn't worry about it tho. It looks very healthy still.

Yeah, might just be a slacker! It will probably be fine, did you get rain maybe? That almost always knocks mine down for a while, but it recovers, or I succession seed!

You caught it napping. Came a thunderstorm and my whole garden looked like that.

some of my beets do the same thing...and some make it and some don't. I sent a pic to our county extension office and they said it was "dampening off" (not sure if they were right). I find it happens in cold wet weather (spring beets) and not so much with fall beets.

It looks fine to me, but then, all of my chard, kale, bok choy, etc, fall over as seedlings and then self correct. The roots become monsters and do a good job letting the plants straighten up and stay right.
