Heirloom among the best winter spinach varieties.

One of the delightful surprises for new gardeners is that there are crops, like spinach, that not only survive cold northern winters but actually thrive in them. Sown in late fall, spinach sprouts and grows a bit before resting during deepest winter, then emerges powerfully in the cool of early spring, like a chicken squawking at the first hint of dawn. Spinach is just as happy sown in early spring or late summer, but there is no competing with the delicacy and sweetness of an overwintered crop.

Growing Instructions
Direct sow Bloomsdale Spinach any time soil can be worked in the cooler months, from about 6 weeks before first fall frost until the date of your last spring frost. Broadcast seeds in a well cultivated garden patch, or seed in rows 10" apart and thin seedlings to 6". Spinach sown in fall will come up early in the spring. When full size, harvest the entire plant promptly, especially in late spring, when it tends to bolt under heat pressure. Sow in successions for a steady crop. For a good fall crop, sow spinach in August. Fall crops yield until deep winter; with a cold frame, you can eat spinach all winter long.
