Growing Spinach

Spinach is a leafy green vegetable that grows best in cool weather. Usually thought of as being packed with iron, spinach is even higher in vitamins A and C, thiamin, potassium and folic acid. I have a small patch and am waiting to harvest them.

1Choose a site that gets full sun in cool weather and partial shade in warmer temperatures.
2 Use plenty of well-cured manure
3Sow spinach seeds directly into the garden

4Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep and 2 inches apart in wide rows.

5Thin seedlings to 6 inches apart when the plants are 4 inches tall.
6Keep the soil moist, and feed plants manure tea or fish emulsion every 10 days until they're 6 inches tall
7Cut spinach leaves as you need them from the outside of the plant, or harvest entire plants when they reach maturity and before they begin to flower.
