100Beet, Early Wonder Tall TopChenopodiaceaeBeta vulgaris (dg fo pf wp)2012-04-03 00:00:00150 each seeds in 8cc blocksplant5Direct sow late April to mid-July. Beets will not produce roots if planted when the soil is too cold. Seeds will germinate in 5-12 days, depending on soil temperature. Optimal soil temperature: 10-26°C (50-80°F).

Sow 1cm (½") deep, 5-10cm (2-4") apart in rows 30-45cm (12-18") apart.

In optimum conditions at least 75% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life: 3 years. Per 100' row: 600-1M seeds, per acre: 436M seeds.
55Ideal pH: 6.0-6.8. For uniformly sized beets, thin carefully to 7-15cm (3-6") apart when seedlings are 5cm (2") tall. Eat thinned plants, roots and all. root size is controlled by spacing and variety.sun or partial shademoistrich100 gramsOur most popular beet variety! Early Wonder Tall Top beets adapt to all seasons but are especially good in early spring with quick growth in chilly soils. Early wonder tall top produce tall, tasty green leaves with red stems and slightly flattened roots thst are wonderful for eating. Early Wonder Tall Top beets makes a good variety for general table use.

Beets are incredibly healthy eating. Both the roots and the leaves are an excellent source of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamin C. They also contain betaine, a compound that is essential for cardiovascular health. Eat them raw, cooked, pickled - you can even make beet chips!

Harvest at any size, but for the best flavour, pull the beets as soon as they have reached full-size. Eat the greens too. Store in the ground, or in moist peat or sand just above freezing.

If beets have black cankers in the roots, soil may need more boron. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of borax to 4L (8½ US pints) of water, and spread evenly over 9m² (100 sq ft) of soil. Do not overapply at a heavier rate. Circular lesions with a purple halo on the leaf is cercospera leaf spot. Prevent by rotation and sanitation. Leaf miner maggots cause blistered grey tunnels in leaves. Just squish them inside the leaf. Floating row cover carefully applied will prevent the leaf miner fly from laying its eggs.

They are good for the table, boiled or baked and mashed, or they can be boiled down in water to make sugar. Or, you can munch them right in the garden, like the picture shows.

Orach is a very easily grown plant, doing equally well in a wide variety of well-drained soils, though rich, moisture-retentive soils give the quick growth that is necessary for the production of tender leaves. Plants require a position in full sun and are tolerant of saline and very alkaline soils. They thrive in any temperate climate, and are drought resistant. Orach is reported to tolerate an annual precipitation of 30 to 140cm, an average annual temperature in the range of 6 to 24°C, and a pH of 5.0 to 8.2. Orach was formerly cultivated for its edible leaves, there are some named varieties. It can be grown as a warm weather substitute for spinach. Some forms of this species have bronze or deep red leaves and are occasionally grown as ornamental plants, their leaves taste the same as the green-leafed forms. Plants are fast-growing and usually self-sow quite freely if the surrounding soil is disturbed by hoeing etc. They tolerate hot weather well, but soon go to seed so successive sowings at 4 weekly intervals are required during the growing season if a continuous supply of leaves is required. Leaves can be harvested 40 - 60 days after sowing the seed. This species is a poor companion plant for potatoes, inhibiting their growth when growing close to them.Arable land, waste and disturbed ground. Sandy to loamy soils, well-drained.

Direct sow March 1 to April 15, and again after August 1. For late spring and early summer plantings use Tyee, and for quick harvest use Space and Olympia. Spinach will bolt once days get long and hot. Some varieties grow enough to harvest before they bolt. For continuous supply, plant every 3 weeks. Optimal soil temperature: 5-20°C (45-70°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-14 days.

Sow seeds 2cm (1") deep, 10 seeds per 30cm (12"), in rows 30-45cm (12-18") apart. Thin to at least 5-8cm (2-3") between plants, or further if you want larger leaves.

In optimal conditions at least 65% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life: 3 years. Per 100' row: 400 seeds, per acre: 174M seeds.
50The trick to growing spinach is to grow it fast and harvset it fast, and use the right varieties in the right season. Spinach bolts as the days get long and when the weather gets hot. That's why spinach is usually grown in early spring and fall, in low temperatures and short days. Some varieties do a little better in long day, hot conditions. Pick them promplty in hot weather. For summer harvests, try New Zealand Spinach. Ideal pH: 6.0-6.5. This heavy feeder requires rich soil. Dig in ¼-½ cup complete organic fertilizer beneath every 1m (3') of row. Overwintering spinach requires well drained soil.sun or partial shadewell drainedrich25 gramsThis HEIRLOOM great tasting spinach has thick, succulent, dark-green savoyed or crumpled leaves that are very sweet in salads or cooked. It is best planted in early spring and fall. If fall-planted, it will overwinter and produce much earlier than if it is spring-planted.

For baby greens, pick when the leaves are 7-10cm (3-4") long. Individual leaves can be picked at anytime, until the plant has started to bolt. Cut the whole spinach plant just above soil level.

Pale, soft tunnels on leaves are probably leaf miner damage. Prevent be covering with floating row cover. You can kill the little insect causing the damage by pinching it inside the leaf. Destroy any affected leaves. Downy mildew is a fungal disease that causes grayish mould on the leaves. To avoid it, provide ample ventilation and avoid overhead watering.
