You likely heard it from your mother when you were a child: “Eat your greens! They’re good for you!” At the time, you probably tried to hide your greens under the mashed potatoes or scrape them off the plate and onto the floor in hopes the dog would eat them. But if only we listened to our parents!
If you’ve never liked spinach, chances are you haven’t eaten it fresh from the garden. Garden-grown spinach is mild, tender and totally delicious! Use it in salads or steam lightly just to wilt. Either way, spinach supplies you with plenty of vision-enhancing vitamin A. Cooked or raw, the dark green leaves of spinach are a super source of vitamins, minerals and cancer-fighting compounds; a healthful addition to any of your favorite recipes. Plus, spinach is one of the most nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods you can grow!
We have a new variety of spinach that we’re really excited about. It’s called Vital Green Spinach, and our growers swear that it is by far the biggest, tastiest spinach you can grow in your garden! Vital Green has a sweet, rich, non-bitter flavor that you’re sure to love. You might even be able to convince your own children or grandchildren to give it a try!
