Happy Spring everyone! Thank you for joining us here. Each day our pasture grass grows taller. The cows are munching away. We’ve even started a little rotational grazing.
It’s not just the cows eating green again, we will soon be too. We all know how strong spinach makes us. Here’s a few tips on planting spinach..
- get ready to plant as soon as the ground can be worked, here in Pennsylvania that’s now!
- loosen the soil with a shovel or digging fork [find a sunny spot]
- use a hoe to make a straight row [or you can really scatter them in a small bed too]
- sew your spinach seeds and cover about 1/2 inch deep
- when the plants are about 1″ tall, you can then to 2-4 inches apart
That’s it! The fun thing about planting your own vegetables is that there are no rules. All you need is a sunny spot and some soil. If you’re just not into the dirt- you can find delicious spinach grown close to you at Local Harvest.
Our spinach is coming along nicely, but this is not ours. The photo above it is our fields in their current state of green.
Head on over to the Good Measure Blog for my guest post on How to Grow Your Own Garlic.
