Spinach

(Spinacia oleracea) Spinach is a cold weather-loving annual leafy green. This frost-tolerant green is much happier growing in cool weather than hot weather, making it an excellent fall, winter and early spring green. Spinach is quick to mature, so it is well suited to succession sowing. Growers in very mild summer climates can grow spinach throughout the season; most others will take a break during the hottest part of summer, resuming as late summer cool weather returns. Direct sow (preferred) as soon as soil can be worked, or start indoors and transplant out 2 weeks before first frost. Seeds germinate in 5-10 days. Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep. Ideal germination temperature is 60-68F, however spinach seed will germinate down to 36F. Space plants 6 inches apart. Spinach can handle shade -- in fact hot summer growers should try to provide shade to keep the plants cool. Water regularly.
