Abundant Bloomsdale spinach is slow to bolt and cold hardy, and has deeply savoyed (crinkled) and succulent leaves. This variety was a collaborative breeding project led by our friends at the Organic Seed Alliance near Port Townsend, WA. The dark green color indicates high levels of carotenoids, such as lutein and beta-carotene, and the flavor is sweet. The variety is slower growing yet produces exceptionally large leaves, on the west-side… Here, we have never achieved the giant leaves that one can get on the other side of the mountains.  We are interested in finding spinach varieties that perform even better on this side, and would love input from any of our local customers to find these varieties.

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
