It’s Spinach Season! Here is a Healthy Spinach and Strawberry Salad
While it has been a cool and wet April so far, that has not been a problem if you Overwintered Spinach that you planted last fall, or you were able to get some seeds into the ground earlier in March. Right now spinach is in harvest and if you are looking for a tasty and healthy salad idea, check out this video that Jenny and I did last spring showing how to grow, harvest, and prepare a healthy spinach and strawberry salad.
We also have a version translated into Spanish!
It is not too late to plant spinach right now but time is getting short. Get some seeds in the ground soon before the weather gets too hot.
