The Best Method For Harvesting Spinach
Spinach is a green leafy vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. While you can quickly harvest it by cutting them at its stem, there is a way to sustain its growth.
Harvest spinach in the morning or evening by its individual leaves, removing the mulch and soil surrounding the base. Pick a leaf from the outer portion and cut it with scissors.
Leave 1/2 inch of stem and harvest at most 25% to 30% of a single plant in one go to encourage your plant to keep growing and producing more leaves.
