Corvair spinach

I have been tired out for the past week, despite two greenhouses filling up with cheerful, green seedlings. After a week long blogging break I am back!

Much of what I'm doing this spring is a repeat of last fall's experiments.  The major difference is the new spinach variety, corvair, which is resistant to 11 strains of powdery mildew.  The first true leaves have started to emerge and already I am in love.  Corvair has much rounder, upright leaves than space.  These were major selling points when I was deciding what variety of spinach to use.  Sunny days keep the greenhouses between 60 and 70 degrees, which is pretty nice to work in.
