We had a terrific spinach salad yesterday … big enough for two large helpings each … with thinnings from the wintered-over spinach. Now note, these “thinnings” are not the usual tiny plants that one thins when one directly sows seeds but rather plants that were nearly 50% fully grown and just crowding each other out for that last 50% effort. So, we got a large collander full of leaves. And … it was very crisp and tender. Nice to have an early start to the season.
First harvest of 2009
