Chard is one of those vegies needing alot of legroom....the roots grow quite deeply and when they reach as far as they can, the plant starts growing a stalk. I fertilize with Fish Fertilizer or any other high nitrogen fertilizer...
While the Rainbow Chard is really colorful and a bit more tender, I prefer growing the larger leafed Fordhook variety as I have a small space in which to grow it so I want the best bang for my buck.
Instead of throwing out the stalks (I do the same with Kale and other vegies) I chop them up, cook them and give them to my dog (a labrador mix) along with other bits from cleaning the vegies.
Leap. The net will appear.
