Happy Heart, Happy Belly

Sunday was a great day. Well, aside from finding out that my ‘vertically growing spinach’ had gone to seed and BOLTED! Nooooooo. After reading up on it, I guess it is quite common. I had no idea this was a risk-factor for spinach! Gardening is a practice of trial and error I guess. There was […]
