Pink Passion

Beta vulgaris var. cicla
HOW TO GROW CHARD

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 9 weeks before first frost, without additional protection. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 weeks later. Direct sow in spring when soil temperature is at least 50˚F. prefers cool weather, will tolerate some heat. Thinnings can be eaten as baby greens. Water freely during the season. Harvest leaves by snapping them off close to the ground from several plants rather than stripping one. If there are more leaves than you can use, it is best to pick them to reduce disease and encourage a new steady supply of young leaves. Soil pH 6.1-7.8. Hardiness zones 5. Biennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 2,800 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard: 65%. Usual seed life: 6 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 5 miles.

A commercial variety a half decade ago, but missing now for several years.

Wild Garden Seed Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth Seed grower since 1994
Karen and I began Wild Garden Seed in 1994 at the same kitchen table where her laptop is sitting now. The seed business was an adjunct to our Wild Garden Salad business until September of 2001, when we left salad selling behind and rededicated all of our energies to making a livelihood as seed growers, breeders, and sellers. There were some very tough years there. In 2002 we began a joint venture with our friends John Eveland and Sally Brewer, owners of Gathering Together Farm, to grow and sell organic seed under the Wild Garden name. Gathering Together Farm provided the infrastructure, means of production, and home office services, Shoulder to Shoulder Farm provided the seed management, processing, research, and marketing. We shared many complimentary farm functions over the years: the insectary benefits of diverse flowers in a long period of blooming, the harvest synergies of biennial crop production together, peaks and ebbs in farming cash flow, and seasonally opportune infrastructure sharing. All of these made the farm function better and helped lift Wild Garden Seed into a self-sustaining, farm-based seed enterprise with an international reach. We sold seed to 41 countries in 2014, our 20th anniversary.
