First Crop of 2010: Spinach

Today I picked 11 ounces (a BIG bowl) full of spinach from the veggie beds. Our first crop harvest of the year! This is "Regal" spinach from Territorial Seed which I purchased last year. I only picked the outer leaves from about 5 squares of spinach today, and the weather is still mild, so the plants will continue to grow. Look at the size of these leaves! I planted about 6 weeks ago.

This is what became of it: a simple salad that our family really enjoyed. Homegrown spinach is so vastly superior to store-bought. The leaves are almost crunchy with moisture, but so tender.
