If you haven't grown chard before, here is a tip. Each of the 'seeds' is not really a seed. Each of the 'seeds' is really a cluster of up to six or eight seeds. So be sure to space the clusters about a foot apart, and you will still have to thin when the seeds germinate. I just lift and space the small plants when they get their first true leaves. Very few ever die from this thinning, transplant process.
*Getting sloppy with my proofing. Had to make a couple of edits to make the sentences make sense.
