GROWING SPINACH-
Spinach Seeds: Bloomsdale Savoy- A great tasting Heirloom spinach with thick, succulent, dark green leaves that are sweet in salads or cooked. Best planted in early spring or fall. IF fall planted, it will over winter and produce much earlier in the spring. Ready in 50 days, Open Pollination

Timing: Spinach does best in cool weather. Direct sow mid-March to May and again in mid-August to September
Seeding: Sow seeds 1 cm deep, 2 cm apart, deeper in warm soil (where the moisture is)
Growing: Spinach requires rich soil and a fairly neutral pH of 6.0-6.5. Overwintering spinach needs well drained soil. For baby greens, pick when the leaves are 7-10cm long. Individual leaves can be picked at anytime, until the plant has started to bolt.

GROWING BUSH BEANS
Bush Beans: Tricolour Bean Blend- Premium blend of green, gold, and purple bush beans on productive plants will brighten meals and lengthen the harvest. The Tricolour bean blend produces a rainbow of colours in the garden and on the dinner plate as an exciting vegetable side. Ready in 52-60 Days, Open Pollination.Bush Beans need warm soil to germinate, especially when using untreated seeds like these. DO NOT PLANT BEANS IN COLD WET SOILS!

Timing: Seeds will sprout in 6-10 days depending on soil temperature. Sow from mid-May to mid-July
Seeding: Sow seeds 2-5 cm deep, 5-10 cm apart
Growing: Well drained, warm soil is best. Raised beds help with both drainage and warmth. Too much nitrogen fertalizer is often the cause of poor pod set and delayed maturity. Bush beans prefer full sun exposure, but can tolerate partial shade with a reduced yield.
