PLANT - SWISS CHARD: RAINBOW
Swiss chard is a biennial that grows as an annual in all temperate zones. It’s hardy to approximately 15°F, but while it does best in cool temperatures, it can tolerate heat with adequate watering. The best time to pick vegetables is during the cool morning or evening hours.
When harvesting both young and older leaves, always take the outer leaves first, leaving the younger, inner ones to continue to grow. Make clean cuts across each stem about an inch above the base of the plant.
Companion plants: chamomile, coreopsis, lettuce, mint, nasturtium, and sweet alyssum. Avoid planting corn; cucumber, melon, and pumpkin; and potatoes.
PRO TIP: Plant in fall through and late spring.
