Yes, soak the seeds for a day or two!

Swiss Chard grows like crazy forever and ever.  I am not sure you can kill 
it!  It can be slow to start, once it is established you'll being eating it 
several times a week.  I like the Rainbow or Joseph's Coat as it is colorful. 
 Try cooking it with applewood smoked bacon and a dash of Applewood Smoked 
Habanaro pepper.  It's really good with Balsamic Vinegar and garlic.
