I’ve been super discouraged by our spinach crop this year. Something is completely demolishing what was initially a beautiful bed of leafy greens.

 

Isn’t it sad to look at?

I’m not sure if it’s mites, leaf miners, or maybe aphids (although I haven’t seen aphids on the leaves)? Or maybe it’s a disease of some sort? Perhaps the plants are lacking nutrients?

Whatever the case may be, I only got two smoothies and two salads out of our entire planting before it was unharvestable.

I tried spraying some organic pest spray on the bed but with all the rain we’ve had it’s been nearly impossible to keep it sprayed.

If you know what’s causing this damage to our spinach and you have an organic solution, I’d love to hear from you!

Is there still hope for a harvest?
