Vallis Veg - Spinach Grown At Vallis Veg
|1 x 150g
This is the 'true' spinach that is most familiar to us, as opposed to the 'perpetual spinach'/leaf beet/chard that we also grow. We are growing 3 varieties this year, Merlo Nero, Viking and Renegade.
Spinach is rich in iron, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate, and a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach.
Spinach can be a tricky crop because it grows best in the cooler spring and autumn months and very quickly goes to flower in the heat, so timing is crucial to ensure that we can get it planted out in time to get at least 3 harvests per plant before bolting (extra challenging with the early heat this season).
