I lost most of my spinach this year to the early bout of 90s we had in the Northeast a couple of weeks back. It was just starting to come into its own…and then jumped up and keeled over in moments, or so it seemed, completely bypassing the tender, edible phase. Timing is everything, huh? Libby is right, we will have to replant late summer for a fall crop, and with spinach I find that the best harvest actually comes from seed sown around Thanksgiving, then left to overwinter under the snow and spring up in March/April. Why didn’t I do that last fall…hmmm…maybe I’ll make another to-do list that I can fail to follow!
