Large Spinach

One of the great things about growing a garden is you aren't bound to the grocery store or a farms' beliefs of when to pick vegetables and fruits. Zucchini and spinach are two items that we have more uses for when they grow longer.  With large spinach leaves we are able to make things like spinach wraps.  They can still be chopped up for salads or even juiced.  In the store you only find the younger, smaller leaves.  My pallet does not notice a big difference in taste.  The stem is thicker, but that isn't a big deal either.
