Spinach: Spinacia oleracea Teton

Spinach: Spinacia oler A tasty, versatile spinach, 'Teton' produces beautiful, smooth, dark-green leaves. Because it grows upright, it's easy to harvest and bunch.

In the early 1600s, it was brought to America, where its nutritional value and versatility have made it a valuable market crop ever since. Amend soil with well-rotted manure or compost before planting. In spring as soon as soil can be worked, direct sow 1 1/2 inches deep and 2 inches apart in rows 12?18 inches apart. For fall crops, resow in mid- to late summer. In cold zones, sow in fall for an early spring crop; seeds will sprout during thaws and yield the first greens of spring. In the Deep South and on the Gulf and Pacific coasts, sow from fall to early spring. At Turkey Hill Martha uses her cold frame for extra-early and extra-late harvests. 0 Thin young plants to 6 inches apart.
