I never got my spinach seeds sown this past fall. Usually I try to start seeds in the garden in the fall so that the plants will resume growing early in the spring. Oh, well. Now that it has finally turned cold, I think I'll get started on some winter sowing. There are several vegetables and flowers that can be sown this way and spinach seems like a good candidate. I know it will grow pretty fast, even if I wait to plant until spring. But I'm impatient and even a few days earlier is a treat for me. What better way to start them new year than to start my new garden?
