Well, not exactly time for the seed trials–but I got my seeds in the mail yesterday! Such excitement!
If you are new to this blog, you might not be aware that we’ve participated in the U of M master gardener seed trials the past few summers. We’ve done green beans, zinnias, and turnips, among other things.
This year is the year of the spinach! I requested carrots and spinach, but I know they had a lot of volunteers so they had to stick to basically one type of seed per person. But I’m excited–I’ve never grown spinach before, so it will be a learning experience in many ways.
The types of spinach aren’t labeled, as such, because it’s a blind test. But I do know that these packages contain these varieties: ‘Bloomsdale,’ ‘Donkee-savoy,’ ‘Galilee,’ ‘Olympia,’ ‘Renegade,’ and ‘Tyee-savoy.’
I will be looking forward to the taste test.
