Fordhook Giant will come back the next year. I have planted other chard next to the Fordhook Giant and none of the other made it. It will start growing new leaves and I have been able to get quit a bit off before bolting, unless where we have kind of a heatwave really early and then it goes back to cool, the heat will be too much. I have some right now that I expect to see next spring. I will try to take pictures of it.Tell me about over-wintering chard, please. Can it survive a zone 5 winter?
And if it survives, what then --
will it simply bolt to seed?
