These spinach plants, which were planted in early Spring are bolting in the summer sun and will produce thousands of seeds. Some will be planted as soon as they are dry for an Autumn harvest of tender spinach, and the rest will be saved in glass jars or paper envelopes for next Spring. Allowing space for food plants to seed in your garden is a key technique used in Permaculture to quickly multiply your food. The abundant potential of seeding plants in the vegetable garden turns unsightly chaos into beautiful potential. Any one package of heirloom open-pollinated seeds will multiply into thousands of plants, capable of feeding many, many people, in only one season!
