IMPLANTATION:
Because spinach doesn’t do well in hot temperatures, we only grow it towards the tail end of the summer and all through autumn and winter. We use a cut and come again strategy where we only harvest the large outer leaves of each plant over many weeks. To ensure a continuous supply, we stagger our planting to transition from the field to winter greenhouse, planting enough beds to supply our weekly sales targets.
