Organic Swiss Chard: Rhubarb Planting Instructions:
Plant Rhubarb Swiss Chard seeds in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Prepare the bed by turning soil to a depth of 8". Sow seeds about 6" apart and cover with 1/2" of soil in rows 18-24" apart. Thin to 8-12" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall. Approximately 1" of rain is needed per week. Keep plants well-watered during dry periods to promote growth.

Organic Swiss Chard: Rhubarb Harvesting Instructions:

Rhubarb Swiss Chard is ready to harvest in approximately 60 days when plants are 6-8" tall. To eat fresh, harvest leaves when they are 5-6" long, removing from the outer base. Cut off the outer leaves 1/2 inch above the ground with a sharp knife. Plants that are harvested regularly will continue to produce new growth from the center of the plant. Both the leaves and stalks are edible raw, steamed or saut'ed.
