First Spring Spinach!

Organic Spinach April 2012
I just picked the first harvest of fresh spinach from my cold frame here in Vermont. I planted the seeds last fall but they went into the ground a bit late, so the plants languished all winter.

The unusual 80-degree summer weather from a few weeks ago warmed up the soil under the hoops and plastic so the spinach plants took off.

I've got enough fresh green spinach to make a yummy spring salad for supper tonight.
