Growing Swiss Chard

My wife and I have personally never eaten swiss chard. In fact I have never handled swiss chard until today. It was only when put together my list of growing veggies in zone 8 that I found Swiss Chard to be one of the Veggies that will do well in our area. So we commenced to plant some seeds and wallah we had swiss chard shoots growing strong with amazing color. But then the tornado came and brought along violent hail that ripped all of my vegetables to shreds and showed no remorse to the swiss chard. I had no hope for it, but to my surprise and my wife's screaming in my ear to leave the veggies alone until they heal, the swiss chard made a terrific comeback. Thank God for the patience of my wife; for tonight we are blessed to try something new.

Okay, now you have to share what you think of it. I eat beet greens and they look a bit alike to me, but I still fear greens overall.

Yummy! It's got great color too - I'm thinking a little garlic in a saute...
