    Fennel and Chard are classed as "Stems", along with celery, I think
    Kohl Rahbi is definitely a brassica.
    Sweet peppers are capsicums, but they are susceptible to the same diseases as tomatoes.

    Fortunately they don't get blight though so one less thing to worry about

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?
