Wow! Since Foster’s irrigation was fixed this summer, the newly planted Swiss Chard has been growing RAPIDLY! I made sure when making my rounds to speak with teachers today, to announce the news that the chard is absolutely begging to be eaten. I even showed several staff how to harvest the leaves by simply snipping the stem at least 2 inches from the base of the plant. Swiss chard can be eaten in raw salads, sauted with onions and garlic, wilted and wrapped around a meat filling, or juiced. This veggie’s versatility is infinite!
