Re-Grown Store bought Spinach 2 | Home Grown

Finally succeeded in growing store-bought re-grown spinach.. Unlike last time.ย It did really well in the kitchen, but died when planted out!

I love it how I can keep trying till I succeed and I don’t have to spend more money.

this time round Iย did things differently

1) I had a better planting system using the wicking bed, it doesn’t dry up like it did last time.

06/05/15 Day 1: Not the actual day 1 as been really busy but day 1 of being recorded. They were not doing too well in that container anymore so I had to act fast.
