Organically cooked: Silverbeet - Swiss chard (Σέσκουλα)

In the quest to build our natural capital, I am always pleased to find comprehensive sources of information.

Swiss Chard is not a staple here but might be. A hugely diverse mix of greens in the garden, of perennial or annuals, takes out the monotony of standard fair. Interplant.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
