Harvesting Spinach Seeds
Spinach is wind pollinated, and difficult to maintain purity of a certain strain if there are any other varieties with 1 mile. The best thing you can do is grow only one variety at a time, and weed out any undesirable plant as they appear. Spinach is a cool weather crop and does not thrive in hot weather, so plant outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring and in late summer for a fall harvest. When the leaves turn yellow, pull up the plant and strip off the seeds with your hands. Dry seeds thoroughly before storing. Seeds are harvested ANNUALLY.
