Growing: Direct sow anytime soil can be worked in the cooler months, from about 6 weeks before first fall frost until the date of your last spring frost. Broadcast seeds in a well cultivated garden patch or seed rows 10in apart, and thin seedlings to 6in. Spinach sown in fall will come up extremely early in the spring. When full size, harvest the entire plant promptly, especially in late spring, when it tends to bolt under heat pressure. Sow in successions for a steady crop. For a good fall crop, sow spinach in august. Fall crops yield until deep winter; with a cold frame you can eat spinach all year long.
