Chard

Chard, another vegetable that can be planted in either fall or spring, is tolerant of both heat and frost. Chard seed capsules often have two seeds in them, so if both bloom, just cut off one to make sure the other plant reaches maturity. Motherearthnews.com shares some tips for planting and growing chard, such as putting out beer-baited traps or crushed eggshells to fend off unwanted slugs.
