Great Spinach New Zealand Reseeds Itself

by Adam
(Massachusetts)

This is an excellent spinach (substitute) if you live where the climate swings can be rather drastic. It pops out fairly early, and is both heat and cold tolerant. It lasts after first frost and can withstand drought conditions (or having its "feet wet" for prolonged periods of time). It self-seeds if you allow, but doesn't overpopulate. With care, if you have too many plants in the spring you can remove them and transplant or give to a friend. I really have nothing bad to say about this stuff. I wish everything I grew in the garden was this easy to start and care for. It's literally something you plant and forget until you want some. Oh, and it also keeps well, for a fresh green. Simply rinse and put in a ziplock in the fridge, or give it away.
