Detailed Product Info

Our chickens love table scraps and crow with glee when we scatter leftovers for them to devour. Too bad for them Bloomsdale rarely makes it from kitchen to coop. These succulent, slightly savoyed leaves are our earliest new growth greens after a winter of dried, frozen, canned, and fermented foods from last year's garden bounty. If you sow these seeds in November, you'll have something to crow about when the ground thaws next spring.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow Bloomsdale Spinach anytime soil can be worked in the cooler months, from about 6 weeks before first fall frost until the date of your last spring frost. Harvest promptly, especially in late spring, when it tends to bolt under heat pressure. Fall crops yield until deep winter; with a cold frame, you can be eating spinach all winter long.
