Gardening Tips for Winter Spinach

gardening tipsIt’s only a few days until September and soon many gardeners will be tucking in their gardens — so to speak — for a winter rest.

They’ll content themselves with produce they’ve preserved or settle for those sometimes-questionable grocery-store veggies. (It came from where and could have been sprayed with what?)

Or, budgets permitting, they’ll get their veggies at those few-and-far-between organic grocery stores like . . . well, you know.

But there are sometimes other options and today I (or rather Barbara Pleasant) have some gardening tips for you on growing winter spinach.

Gardening Tips on Growing Winter Spinach

Spinach helped launch my career as a garden writer, because my first published article was on growing winter spinach.

So, there you go. And it’s not that difficult, especially with Ms. Pleasant’s comprehensive gardening tips.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and that it helps you keep some fresh vegetables on the table this winter. Help your friends get their spinach, too:  Share Today’s Organic Gardening with them. (I think Popeye would want you to.)
