20 sq feet of spinach seems like a lot and it's not a measurement I've heard of before. Is that an recognized standard adopted by the IOOLG?
Then you mention Spring Crop ... does that mean this needs to grow for that many months yet?
please explain more ...
This is 20 sq ft out of a 4' X 8' rise bed, i.e. 32 sq ft. Rows are 6" apart, seeds were planted about 1.5" apart.
Planted in October and will over winter under snow and freezing weather. Early spring 2023 these plants will take off and provide early greens. We have been over wintering spinach this way for years.
Spinach that has gone through freeze cycles is very tasty.
A post from years ago we tried under a cover for the winter. Now we don't bother with any sort of cover.
who knew! I thought spinach was seeded in the spring and ... voila ... in a couple of weeks you have a nice crop.
I suppose the warming climate helps with not needing a cover.
thanks for the details ...
2023 spring spinach crop.
Was just a dusting here ... all gone now .
How is the storm doing out west today?
drifting sprays of water here ...
We got about 3" and then rain. Soggy mess, had fun out with the tractor pushing snow.
Next Thursday possible nor easter 8 to 12"
