Spinach: two ounces of pure sovereignty

We have grown spinach for the last few year and really enjoy its goodness. I've let them go to seed a few times, but never really got serious about saving seeds. Well, this is my first attempt to be serious--two ounces is probably too serious--and share with those around me. It was difficult to let them dry in the ground. I found myself being a bit impatient? However all seemed to work well. I haven't tested the germination percentage yet, but I hope too in the next few weeks.

I cut and hung the spinach plants before de-seeding and I made a little time laps to show part of the process.


  1. Very cool. I hope you have a very high germination rate. Maybe we'll try it someday.

  2. I am going to try a germination testing technique from the book Seed to Seed. Basically,I will set out a few moist paper towels with groups of ten seeds and do the math:)
