Spinach Harvest


This spinach was sown in October of 2009. After overwintering in the cold frame for nearly 6 months I decided I was finally going to harvest the spinach on April 10th 2010. I was surprised at how long green leafy vegetables can survive in the cold frame for so long. I washed the spinach and sauteed them with evoo, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt & pepper. Next time I will plant a bigger patch of Spinach since they went so quick. The spinach breed used was Bloomsdale Longstanding. I used these seeds since I didn't have any Italian spinach seeds laying around at the moment.

  1. Ciao! That spinach looks great... I can just taste its earthy, plush flavor. Have you ever added raisins and toasted pine nuts in the sauté? It's a typical Roman recipe called quite simply "Spinaci e Uvetta."

    Try this for seeds: INGEGNOLI

    Ciao

  2. That sounds great, almost like an agrodolce.
