This cool season crop is rich in vitamins and minerals. You can grow spinach in any good, well- drained garden soil. Spinach does not like acid soil. Needs a lot of nitrogen. Keep well watered. Plant as early as soil can be worked. Once established will survive hard freeze. Keep the largest leaves picked for more leaf production. Bolting will happen with rising temperatures, longer days, or stress caused by inadequate water or nutrients.
