Baby leaf spinach

Later in the summer we will be having the spinach steamed as a vegetable, but for now the young leaves are good in salads.

The spinach is growing in the tiny strip of lawn I dug up in the garden of our new bungalow, when I realised the soil was good and couldn't resist giving it a try.

The only food I've given the seedlings is organic soil improver, so I suppose this is organic spinach.
