Spinach vs. Lettuce

My husband has become a spinach snob. Last year, we grew 'Springer' spinach and he loved it so much that now that's all he wants for his salads. We also grew Mesclun Mix and head lettuce.

This year, I planted Mesclun Mix again, using seed I saved from last year. The first planting of spinach is now bolting and we're on the last harvest of that, but the Mesclun Mix is producing like crazy, so we're eating more lettuce than spinach.

Romie made it clear he was not happy that the spinach salads are over for now. He wasn't particularly interested in the lettuce, even though it's very tender and very good.

He'll just have to suck it up and settle for fresh leaf lettuce salads for awhile. Poor thing.
