Growing Spinach, also English spinach

22 Apr 09 Adrian (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
With sudden hot spells in Canberra in March, my spinach seed had limited germination, so I bought 5 punnets of 'Ironman' spinach and planted each punnet clump with a 6 inch spacing to the next in a row of about 2 metres. Sort of cheating, but effective. Will be eating it in four weeks right through to mid September. Wonderful stuff!
