Well its the rainy season. And come June and July, Amma would get us filled with the seasons best offerings, lush leafy vegetables. And I grew up loving this awesome green wonder and thanks to destiny, it turned out be Caveman’s favourite veggie too.
So the spinach growing experiment started with the seeds from the local nursery, tilled the soil , and off they went.. As always haphazard lining but the seeds germinated in 8 days. and looked so fresh and pretty even when they put their heads up. I placed it on my kitchen balcony sill where the pot got atleast four hours of sunlight.
And after a month, they were ready to harvest, lush green, and on my kitchen platform.
I have three pots of spinach lined up now and we hope to gorge on as much as spinach as we can.
