leafing out

Some of the Chard is growing back already, from the ugly stumps of winter stems. I'm probably just going to compost it, though, as I know from last year it will just make seed and I've already got plenty of that.
I'd rather the Beets that overwintered make seed for me this year. A few seem to have survived, even though I didn't get any fall crop (can't seem to time that right).

I'm getting so excited seeing this blog come back to life :D You know what? I totally should've planted some chard this year...I've actually never had it before!

I love growing chard. It's versatile like spinach, great in nutrients, and grows nearly all season for me!
