On the Arrival of Spring and Spinach…

Growing Spinach Sweet Potatoes and Social Change

A few weeks ago I excitedly told you all the my spinach plants had finally begun to sprout. Today they have exploded into a bountiful crop of spinach plants. This is the first food item I have ever grown by myself and in our less- than-ideal apartment growing circumstances I was unsure of how well the spinach would do. After much obsession over these little seeds however… they have done great. They have even withstood the last few weeks of very warm weather without bolting and halting their growth too early. I plan to let the plants continue to grown for a little while longer before I cut and freeze the leaves, but I have harvested a few leaves here or there to use in recipes I’ll be sharing with you soon.

This is truly proof that homesteading and gardening can be done anywhere even if you live in a tiny, very shady, apartment!
