sPINACH IS ONE OF THE easiest things to grow in my garden.
It is a never fail one, apart from English spinach which seems to get eaten by"things" more than the others.
I have just one plant now, think it is chard with red stems, and it just goes on and on giving me fresh spinach which grows very quickly.
I have another type growing wild which self seeds every year and grows everywhere and do not know what it is called, but it is like a creeper and has small leaves and black berries.
I love growing spinach and silverbeet. It's great to be able to just duck outside and grab some spinach and cook something up with it.
I'm starting to get my garden in my new house going, I planted baby spinach a few weeks ago and I'll definitely be adding in some silverbeet etc. Not sure how it'll go in the hot weather here but fingers crossed.
We grew just good old regular spinach when I was little, but now I just grow the sweeter Baby spinach in tubs as I can use the leaves in salads as well as for cooking in stir fry meals! I have it in the same area as all of my lovely herbs. Living alone, means that I do not need large amounts of anything, so this is the best way for me to grow such items.
Always grow our own spinach. As a matter of fact, just sown new crop last week. We get so much I give bunches away all the time. We freeze excess spinach so we've usually got a lot on hand for family when the crop is finished.
I have grown Silverbeet, and some English Spinach. I usually have a garden with lots of lovely green and leafy things growing at this time of year, but I didn't plant it this year. I had other pressures at the time I should have been planting and now things are so very dry I am unlikely to put anything in.
