The Hastings Mail - - WHAT’S ON -

Make life a lit­tle eas­ier by grow­ing cool sea­son stal­warts Swiss chard and silverbeet. Both of these greens are full of good­ness as well as be­ing ver­sa­tile in the kitchen. I use the leaves in soups, omelettes, quiches, lasagne, pies, pasta dishes or sim­ply steamed with salt and pep­per on top.

They are also frost-hardy, easy to grow and care for, and un­trou­bled by dis­ease dur­ing win­ter. In the su­per­mar­ket, silverbeet bunches sell for around $5 so it makes sense to grow your own.
