The last of my seed order has finally arrived. The Spinach arrived on Friday. While I am glad it finally arrived, I would have liked to have had it about a month ago so I could have planted it according to he directions: “Plant when the weather is cool and the soil can be worked.” Oh well, we’ll see how it does this spring. I may have to try for a fall crop as well.
In addition to the spinach, I also went ahead and planted zucchini and two cherry tomato plants. The perennial favorite, Sweet 100 and a newcomer “Large Cherry” were planted in the southwest bed.
As a result of the new plantings, I needed to also fence in the two remaining open beds. The fourth bed, with cucumber, lettuce and now spinach is using the old fencing and posts from last year. I don’t think it will hold up for another season so I will have to replace that as well at some point.
Be sure to check out the planting table for the latest dates and updates.
