The photos were taken on June 9th.
I needed the row for planting my tomatillos which had out grown their pot. As you can see, the spinach plants were just pulled from the ground. The roots make for a nice photo. Left behind was a nice empty row for another vegetable to start maturing.
I sowed the spinach seed directly into the garden on March 17th. On April 14th a few tiny spinach sprouts were visible. By June 9th I was pulling, blanching and freezing a few bags full. Fresh spinach is wonderful and the fall planting will be a welcome sight when fresh greens are needed.
