A flat leaf spinach that can be harvested in 25 days for baby greens or leave it to grow for 60 days for full sized spinach leaves. Spinach is a cool season crop. Direct sow in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Continue sowing until the end of April or early May. Then sow again in late summer for a fall crop. We always cover our spinach plants with floating row covers to protect them from leaf miners.
