Spring Garden Acre is a blog about our family's gardening adventures. We call our place Spring Garden Acre, because we live on Spring Road with about an acre. We're located in zone 6b of south central PA. We grow peaches, berries, vegetables and keep a few chickens for eggs and meat.

Harvest Monday and New Family Members
This Monday we don't have much to share for Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday, but we sure did enjoy what we have. C. James and I harvested 16 oz of Viroflay Giant spinach from cold frame #3. Dave kindly sent us seeds. They germinated well and are growing like mad! Thanks Dave! We've never had much success with spinach in the past. I think the combination of good soil, a great location on our south wall and a good seed variety is finally bringing success! There should be lots more spinach to eat before it gets too warm. I've got to add how rich tasting and great the thick velvety Viroflay leaves are. Yum! Belle sauteed them briefly in Balsamic vinegar and served it for lunch.
