Started seed trays of chard and kale 3-4 weeks ago. Many have come up, but a good portion of them appear to be rather spindly and barely able to support the weight of the expanding leaves. My raised beds are ready and the temps here in Dallas are dropping (it's all relative).
Should I attempt to plant the spindly specimens, and if so, do I plant them up to the leaves?
If not, I guess I could direct sow more seeds. Just want to give the best chance for a good crop.
If the temps are still wavering on the warm side, I'd probably pot em up to 16 oz cups probably up to their leaves. If you plant them out in the heat, they're gonners for sure...unless you can keep them covered and misted...
