Spinach plants from seeds are starting to pop up through the ground and will do well with fall weather.

A second chance at spinach

I planted spinach early last spring and it immediately bolted. The spinach grew into tall and spindly plants that never offered a harvest.

It was such a waste of time and seeds. I decided not to plant any more spinach and instead stick to kale and Swiss chard. I have had better luck with those crops.

A couple of weeks ago, I planted more spinach seeds in my garden. I know I said that was it with the spinach but maybe a fall harvest will work better.

As the plants mature, the weather will be cooler. Besides I really like spinach the best.
