Every year, I let my Swiss chards go to seeds and every year, in January-February, I get lots of volunteers. At the start of January 2022, I transplanted 25 Swiss chards seedlings which are growing nicely thanks to the rain we have had recently. I still have about 25, if someone is interested. If you let them go to seeds, you will have Swiss chards for years to come.
Did you know: Swiss chard and beets were bred from the same species, Beta vulgaris. Chard was bred for their leaves, and beets for their roots.
