Nitrates in Spinach?
Anybody have knowledge regarding nitrates in spinach they want to share? I stumbled across some information recently that surprised me. I was reading up on making your own baby food, since I want to start our baby girl out right, and it warned about using homegrown veggies because of high nitrate levels in them. Being an organic gardener I assumed they were referring to the fact home gardeners use a lot of synthetic fertilizers. However I've found a lot of discussions suggesting even organically grown veggies (especially spinach and lettuce) can be high in nitrates. What's the scoop?
