I had bought 4 spinachI had bought 4 spinach seedlings from a grocery store in a 4-pack, which were each about as tall as my finger. I planted them in pots on my porch in early May. They are all healthy and fully green. However, almost every leaf on every plant is arrow-shaped (and has been since I got them) and stalks with buds on them are growing, and they got much taller within only a few days. A search online tells me that this means they are about to become bitter, seed, and die. Right now the leaves are green and not very bitter. My question is, if I bring the spinach pots indoors, can I still save the plants and get them to produce big, edible leaves over the summer? Or is it already too late to do that?
