This week sees the return of a staple crop at Coombe Lynher Farm - perpetual spinach. Richard has been growing this variety for over 20 years and the early plants are ready to cut for the first time with packs available on the Hubs now.
"They were grown from seeds at Fentongollan Plants sown in February in polytunnels and we planted them out in early April. So far they have survived a few cold nights and are loving the sunshine. We will let the crop re-grow after this harvest and hopefully have at least 2 more cuts this summer, in contrast with regular spinach which is plant once and cut once. We keep sowing until July and will have spinach available through to November."
