Chard Leaves Are Tightly Curled

Question From: Port Townsend, Washington, United States
Q: Chard leaves tightly curled, no sign of insects, surrounding plants healthy. What?!?

A: My guess is your plants have a virus spread by leaf hoppers. There is no cure so destroy the plants and replant in a different area. Covering the plants with a floating row cover will keep the leaf hoppers at bay. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
