GROW SILVERBEET & SWISS CHARD
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.
