Outdoors- Sow 1/2” deep, thin to 3-6” in early spring when soil temperatures reach 45 degrees. Sow late summer for fall harvests. Sow in the fall and cover with mulch for an early spring crop.
Harvest- The leaves at anytime starting with baby greens at 3” or the entire plant before it bolts.
Tips- Providing nitrogen and consistent water during growth produces the most optimum plants. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree spinach mix for a season long supply.
