The New Zealand Spinach has started to go to seed so it’s time to dig it up and clear the ground for another crop. We got quite a large harvest from the last plants though and I made a great Ricotta and Spinach cannelloni with it.
Spinach is a great cool-weather crop but it hates dry weather and will bolt (run to seed) very easily once the weather starts to warm up. It’s not really worth sowing any more NZ Spinach until the weather starts to cool down again in late August / early September. So I’ll have to rely on my Spinach Beet plants to keep the mtp kitchen supplied with greens.
