- I love the way it grows so happily in mostly-shady situations. Some of mine grows where it only gets about 3 hours of sunlight a day.
Swiss chard growing beside my house. It only gets
about 3 hours of sunlight, and that in the afternoon.
- I love the taste of it.
- I love that in my Southern garden, I can grow it most of the year.
- I love that Swiss chard is pretty enough to grow in the front yard garden.
The only time I can't grow Swiss chard is when it is going to seed. Luckily, this year, my son's Junior Master Gardeners group took the Swiss chard they had growing out and I was able to plant this plant to tide me over until the seeds come in and my baby Swiss chard plants are big enough to harvest.
