Planting Update - Champion Collard Greens and Northern Lights Mix Swiss Chard

I planted some Champion Collard Greens today -  They will be ready in about 75 days and produce short stems with thick leaves.

The second variety I planted is Northern Lights Mix Swiss Chard.   It will be ready in 60 days and is a nice mix of Snow white, magenta, gold, and deep red swiss chard leaves.  The stalks are very broad, fleshy, and tender.    Swiss chard is very nutritious and high in fiber.
