Can i check is this purple chard..?

This was something i planted last year that i thought dead off, but appears to made a second coming, is this purple chard or something else or may even be a weed ?

    Purple sprouting broccoli.  If you don't keep harvesting the spears as they are produced, they go to flower.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thanks Bob, when you say harvest the spears?
    Does that mean i should be picking the purple buds(broccoli like) sections off the plant and eating them? or the yellow buds\flower heads that will mature into broccoli ?
