Swiss Chard!!!


By linmar


Last September/October I bought a trayful of plants (from a local small nursery) labelled Swiss Chard. I cut some and ate it at intervals & never having grown S C before, thought it must be very slow growing! – its in a container and still growing. I’ve just realised that its nothing like Swiss Chard but its actually Spinach!! How’s that for auto-suggestion?! :)

You won't make that mistake again - and the spinach will have been very good for you....
