For me...the eternal question....



Swiss Chard or Rhubarb? Rhubarb or Swiss Chard??  Only you city slickers can relate to this.  It's the red stem thing.

les feuilles des rhubarbes sont plus large donc je dis cardes qui en France selon les régions s'appellent aussi poirée ou blettes

My brother bought rhubarb pie yesterday. My grandmother used to grow rhubarbs at home when I was a kid. That's two rhubarb facts for you!

Yes red chards I would say... so good with a béchamel and swiss cheese on top right from the oven!

Looks like rhubarb to me. I thought Swiss Chard was what we call blette here but that has white stems. Delicious, by the way. So I haven't a clue about red chard. Very nice photo regardless. Love the light.

Thanks to our fantastic Portland Farmers Market, I can tell this is chard. I've seen rhubarb, too, but I knew. Great photo!

I've grown Swiss chard in my garden for the first time this year and I was looking for a recipe...and I landed here!
I found no recipe but I like your blog!
