Bloomsdale Spinach


Heirloom among the best winter spinach varieties.

One of the delightful surprises for new gardeners is that there are crops, like spinach, that not only survive cold northern winters but actually thrive in them. Sown in late fall, spinach sprouts and grows a bit before resting during deepest winter, then emerges powerfully in the cool of early spring, like a chicken squawking at the first hint of dawn. Spinach is just as happy sown in early spring or late summer, but there is no competing with the delicacy and sweetness of an overwintered crop.
