Happy thought

My gardening friend Sherry told me this weekend that Swiss chard will reseed in the garden, and that once you have it, you always have it.  What a happy thought!  Having tasted chard for the first time a couple of years ago, I just had to try growing some. I love the red stems and purplish leaves.  This year I will leave the plants to set seed and see if indeed I am rewarded with a new crop.  Hopefully self-seeding will result in plants growing at the right time, so they are ready to eat throughout the winter. For looks and taste, this is one of my favorite vegetables.
