We talk a lot about climate change, it’s good to know that part of the change in our nature is due to the fact that we deplete natural lungs and we don't recycle green. By this I mean that if we are depleting our plants we should know that we can keep planting more and thus contribute a little to the oxygenation of the environment.
I try to plant my own vegetables at home, in my family vegetable garden in pots and also to put something for sale to make some profit in the current economy.
My spinach plant has grown up and has tangled up in front of my living room screen. It shades the room and changes the temperature in my living room a bit. It also oxygenates my environment. It has produced a lot of seeds there, I have collected some seeds that have gone through the drying process and eventually I put them in a pot for germination.
Then in two weeks some very vigorous seedlings have come up, but I have to wait until they are firmer and then move on to separate pots.
You can see how they have grown, I have 10 seedlings to be transplanted to their final bags and there you can see that they already have more than 6 leaves, green and thick.
They are now ready, transplanted in black plastic bags, with a substrate of black river soil with a mixture of compost and worm compost. This will be enough for them to get used to the environment where I place them and soon they will have a size of about 30 cm to be 'put up for sale.
My spinach plant is not yet ready to be replaced, I take the largest leaves and share them with family and friends. The more leaves I remove, the more they are stimulated to produce much more, every week I remove more than 100 leaves and she produces many more. I do a monthly replanting of the substrate and she responds with a great production of leaves and seeds.
I hope this information is helpful if you are thinking of sowing your seeds for family consumption and also depending on the stage of your climatic season.
In my country and in my city now because of the climatic changes only hurricane winds come and bring storms on certain dates and it does not rain as often as before, so most of the time we only have dry land and I take advantage of it to plant throughout the year.
