I've tried twice to get some swiss chard started, and
finally read that I need to soak it overnight first? 
Are there any other tricks? 
Also, I've got some Malabar spinach growing from
Burpee I think, but it's still awfully short, and I
thought it was suppposed to climb.  Is this the same
as NZ spinach?  My regular spinach has long ago bolted
due to high heat, and I'd love some more greens for
the summer!  Thanks, George.

NW FL, zone 8?
