Spinach is one of those great vegetables where you can get a fast-growing repeat harvest. Cut the older, outer leaves and let the newer inner leaves continue to grow for later harvest.
Served hot or cold, it’s one of the healthiest vegetables packed full of iron, vitamins A and C, thiamine, potassium and folic acid.
Spinach belongs to the Chenopodiaceae family including beets, chard and quinoa.
It can be grown from seeds or seedlings and will be ready to harvest within 5 to 12 weeks. Get a continuing supply of leaves by planting another batch 4 to 6 weeks later.
