when to plant spinach, broccoli raab for earliest spring crop?
I read about planting spinach seeds in the fall to get the earliest spring crop, but don't know when to do it. Are they supposed to germinate and come up in the fall? In this case I'd mulch the tiny plants. Will they continue to grow in spring? It's been a mild fall so far, so it might not be too late to start seeds now. Or will the seeds lay dormant and be ready to germinate in spring?
Broccoli raab seeds, if I remember correctly, are supposed to be scattered after the ground freezes. Then they will sprout in early spring, .
Does anyone have experience with either of these?
