It’s hard to get enough greens in my family’s diet. So we rely on Swiss chard , a family favorite, and a frequent go-to veggie. It’s a super food that’s jam-packed with nutrients, phytochemicals, it’s easy to grow, and tastes great. One Swiss chard plant in an old whiskey barrel produced tasty leaves for an entire year! Periodically, trim at the base, and it will keep growing. Swiss chard is a vegetable that tastes fantastic super fresh – so try to buy it fresh at the farmer’s market.
