Growing spinach indoors for the winter

Growing spinach indoors for the winter

You can grow your own fresh spinach indoors even in the winter.

Supplies:

Potting soil

Something to plant it in (I used a left over seed flat from the spring plantings)

Seeds

Water

I started the seeds by soaking them in water over night then transferred them to a wet paper towel sealed inside a baggie until they sprouted.

Then I prepared my seed flat by adding the soil, getting it good and wet and adding my sprouted seeds.

Spinach likes cool weather so I leave the seed flat outside unless it is going to frost in which case I bring it in and put it near a window.

Come winter when it is below freezing just place in a sunny spot in your house and it will take off.

As you harvest plant more sprouted seeds so that you will have yummy spinach all winter long.

Growing your own is cheaper and these days safer than buying it from the store.

Good luck and happy harvesting!
