Keep soil moist while seeds are germinating. Sow every 1 or 2 weeks for successive harvest. Easy to grow with a short harvest cycle. Baby greens can be lightly harvested as early as 25 days and plant will continue growing.
Prefers moist soil while growing and cooler temperatures.
Freezing is the ideal method for preserving your harvest for long-term storage. We recommend a quick steam-blanch and cooling of the spinach, prior to freezing, in order to properly preserve vitamins and nutrition.
