Jean sowed our first spinach seeds of the year this morning one seed to a pot in fifteen pots. When they have been planted out we are going to try hard to pick them as young leaves to get the best flavour. Once the leaves are more than about 5cm long they start to get tough stems and the flavour goes down. We'll sow more seeds as these get used.
