Malabar Spinach Seedlings…Posted: February 26, 2012 Filed under: Gardening Leave a comment
The cold got my Malabar spinach, but not 3 weeks ago I had put the berries I had gotten off of it in between wet paper towels. They didn’t sprout for a week or two so I sat them on top of the grow lights. Frankly, I forgot about them.
But when I realized my plant was dead I had an immediate aha! The sprouts, maybe! And sure enough…they had sprouted and were robust;
Will go in waiting grow buckets…sub-irrigated containers. They’ll twine and crawl up the tomato cage and look like this;
A beautiful plant and the leaves are edible, slightly mucagenic, but good sautéed in butter with garlic and caramelized onions with a hint of nutmeg and black pepper.
