Smooth leaved spinach for spring to summer.
Fills the later-spring slot with good heat resistance and flavor.
Like all spinach, will perform best in warm weather if given afternoon shade, succession-sowed, picked often, and not allowed to dry out.
Deep green leaves
BOTANICAL NAME: Spinacia oleracea
Soaking seeds for 4-6 hours speeds germination. Best planted in succession. Direct-sow or start in flats and transplant 6" apart into moist, non-acid garden soil. Over 85 degrees F, start in pots in a cool place. Spade in some compost; needs plenty of nitrogen available. Does not like heat; plant early and use shadecloth if necessary. Also plant late summer for fall and up to frost for early spring crop. Keep plants watered and weeded. Harvest whole plant or trim leaves.
