It's National Spinach Day!
Who doesn't love Spinach? It's delicious, nutritious, and incredibly easy to grow! It's fitting that National Spinach Day falls in the end of March, the perfect time to sow your first crop of the season in most areas of the country.
Spinach seeds can be sown directly into the garden as soon as the ground can be worked in spring. Simply rake out your planting bed and amend the soil with compost, well-rotted manure or an organic fertilizer. Sow the seeds 1/2" deep every 1/2" or so in rows 12" to 18" apart. Keep the soil moist and the bed weeded, and you should see seedlings emerge in 10-14 days.
Even if Spinach wasn't a nutritional powerhouse, we would eat it all the time. What a delicious, versatile veggie.
