Swiss Chard

We had some decent rain over the last couple of days, everything is growing well. There seems to be a dry "non-growing" period in about August when everything looks tired and thirsty, then come September everything recovers and starts growing again. I thinned out my Swiss chard - Bright Lights to about one plant every 4 inches - the plants grow to a decent size then. Posted by Picasa
