Every winter, we overwinter spinach and lettuce in our garden. It is my favorite time to garden, because you have food all winter long and there is very little maintenance. We always keep one of our raised beds full of spinach and lettuce. There is nothing like picking your salad before you eat it! Here are some pictures of our red leaf lettuce and spinach this year.
Aren’t leafy veggies gorgeous? Spinach is an especially awesome veggie to grow in a winter garden, because it is a ‘cut and come again’ veggie. It will continue to grow back, which provides a steady supply of spinach for months. I love spinach many different ways, and also like experimenting with it. This pesto is one of my favorite spinach dishes, and it is a quick and healthy part of a dish or dip/spread for the entire family. We love it on pasta and on pita bread. I hope you love it as much as we do. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
