Scintillating Chard

 

Swiss chard, a member of the beet family, is a highly nutritious leafy vegetable, very high in vitamins A, K and C.  Grown in zone 8 as a cool season vegetable, chard is also a colorful, vibrant addition to winter gardens. The above picture   of the variety, Bright Lights, highlights the red, yellow and orange stems that support rich green leaves-double bonus for Mobile gardens.  Find more information at  the links below.
