If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.

It's a type of spinach Glenn - lovely flavour, not bitter like other spinach types

Thanks!
Swiss chard looks like beetroot plants on steroids (spinasiebeet in Afrikaans). I have the "bright lights" variety, they're very pretty.  I haven't been able to find small-leaf spinach seed, maybe it's too hot for it here and that's why the nurseries don't stock the seed.

Only a few stalks left of the catnip  LOL. The gardening assistants have loved it to death.

 LOL  Michael! I'm sure that's exactly how it is. You should have seen her roll around in the nip that day, it was hilarious.

The seed or the ready grown veg of the Swiss Chard?  You can buy seed, it's quite readily available.  I find Marog a bit bitter for my taste, however, I ate it a long time ago as a child, so can't remember too well
