Time Now to Sow Spinach for a Fall Harvest

août 15Usually gardeners stop harvesting spinach with the arrival of summer heat, but you can aim for a second crop… in fall! Just sow spinach seeds in pot in mid-August and place the pot in a clear plastic bag in the fridge. Surprisingly, spinach is one of the rare plants that germinates better under cool temperatures.
