Tyler, Norman, & Arturo,
I will send pictures as soon as I take them. We had some rain the past few days off and on. Now we need more sun for the garden and the figs.
Swiss Chard has a sweeter taste than spinach, or escarole (escarole is a lettuce type plant which you can have as a lettuce, or cut leaves and boil them and then fry in olive oil, salt, pepper and a lot of fresh garlic. This is the Italian way. I do my swiss chard the same way, since I am the only one who will eat it except my Dad who is now deceased. He had awesome gardens, he planted everything.
Try the swiss chard, they sell it in grocery stores. I never tried it fresh, I don't know if it can be eaten that way, I am sure there are recipes around, if you can eat it that way.
We even go to a huge Pick-your-own farm - a lot of them in New Jersey. I used to get my swiss chard there. But now we are planting it, clip it and leave the roots and it will keep producing until winter.
