Red-ribbed chard

Seven red chard plants add a little vibrant color to this year's vegetable garden. A near-by friend found a good crop of volunteers in her garden this spring. I guess some of last year's crop had reseeded itself. She offered me some and I happily took them. We grew standard white-ribbed blettes (chard) in the garden for a couple of years and really enjoyed it.

So far these transplants look happy and healthy. I'm looking forward to tasting them. We've grown collards, kale, chard, and lettuce over the years. It's good to grow greens. They're delicious and nutritious!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
