They don't like super hot temps. Mine usually die in the heat of the summer but this year we are going to try partially covering them to see if it helps. That's why we have those white poles on the side there.
I got them as little sprouts and planted them about a month ago and are already this big. That's pretty amazing how fast they grow isn't it? I figured I'd get my use out of them since they grow so quick before they start wilting. I'm hoping that creating shade will allow me to have the greens later into the summer.
Jac, sounds like a good idea. One word of caution, although I haven't attempted to grow spinich myself, I have heard that it is not the easiest veg to grow. I don't know if its because it is temp sensitive or because of pests but I know i've read that somewhere.
She likes some of the unusuals, which is pretty neat. Spinich is better than other kinds of leaf lettuces anyways since I think it has the most nutriants. Isn't it a pretty good plant based source of calcium?
