I'm one of the most common garden 'weeds' and I'm sure you've ripped out a lot of my siblings but maybe stop because I'm a tasty, nutritious edible green!
Even if you don't wanna nibble on my leaves, the deer love to. So maybe plant me outside your garden to give them a tasty treat instead of fretting over them eating your stupid spinach.
help me grow:
I'm way more nutrient rich than my domesticated cousin, Spinach. Just let seeds meet soil and I'll be your best salad friend forever. I'm not bothered by frost or heat.
enjoy my bounty:
Harvest my tender tips and young leaves to use any way you use Spinach. Once I set my 'blooms' I get real bitter so best to let me seed next years 'crop'.
*Contains oxalates as does beet greens, swiss chard, spinach, and rhubarb. Minimize consumption is you have reduced mineral uptake and increased kidney stone formation.
