What are the pros? water, sun, cooler temps
What are the cons? record temps, drought
I have grown this chard for a few years and it never ceases to amaze me with what it will put up with. First week or 2 of September 2015 the rows of chard went through 24 deg F temps and are stronger now than before the frost. We had temps to 100 this summer (2015) with drought conditions and large wildfires all around. The only times the plants looked stressed were in the middle of the high heat days, at which point they would be wilted and sad looking. Those same plants are still alive and producing, nice and strong, through freezes.
I highly recommend this for market, home, animals, and anyone or thing that will eat it.
