How to Manage Pests

Pests in Gardens and Landscapes

Harvesting and storage

Harvest spinach as soon as the leaves are large enough to use. You can use the thinnings in salads and for steaming. Once the plants mature, it is best to harvest the whole plant rather than just the outer leaves. Spinach freezes very well.
