Is this why they call it 'Swiss' chard?

I guess I finally figured out why it's called "Swiss" chard.


Interesting.

? Not convinced you know why !

After all, if it's coloured - it's called Rainbow Chard, and the whiter variety is normally referred to as Zilver

Slugs? At least it still looks edible.

Slugs? Hail? Chickens? I'm quite sure I've never eaten Swiss Chard.

Gary Jen and Ruby - I was just being funny.... saying that my Swiss Chard looks like Swiss Cheese with all the holes in it... I wasn't being serious.

Stef/Donna - I don't see ANY bugs out there...about 1/2 is holey and 1/2 is fine. I'll have to harvest ASAP! And would you guys eat holey chard???
