how do i grow Spinach

Direct sow seeds in early spring. Plant your spinach at a density of 9/sqft if you would like baby greens. If you would like larger leaves, thin your spinach to 4/sqft. 

Start planting spinach in mid-July if you want a fall/winter crop and with the proper protection they can grow well into December.

Spinach has a tendency to bolt when the weather gets warmer, so it's a good idea to use succession planting when planting spinach, to ensure you always have fresh leaves ready for harvest.

harvesting

Spinach finishes its harvest when it elongates and forms a central stem, which will become the flower stock.  When this happens pull the plant and pick the leaves.  Before that point, pick the plants outer leaves as you need them and keep picking to encourage further production. Or use cut and come again harvesting and cut the entire plant back to 1”, leaving the root system intact. This should encourage further growth and more harvests.
