Harvesting Swiss Chard

When harvesting Swiss chard remove the outer leaves and leave the smaller inner leaves intact for future growth. Swiss chard is a biennial which means it goes to seed after two years. Take good care of your crop and you can experience a very lengthy and productive growing season.

    Our students and teachers loved this video on how to harvest swiss chard. We’d love to see more informational videos on various plants: noting how to recognize when they are ready for harvesting, how to harvest as well as how often, when to dig up the old plant and use it for compost or the benefits of leaving it in the ground to fertilize the soil. We hope to learn so much for your videos. Thank you.
