Sow seeds 12 mm deep and 3-5 cm apart. If planting in row plant rows 30-45 cm apart. Start planting as soon as the ground can be worked. Sow every 14 days until late June. In mid-late August sow for fall harvest. Mid to late October, so for following spring crops.

Seed saving: Early spring plant 4-6 seeds, in a sunny location, apart from the main crop (if possible). Do not harvest leaves these seeds, let them send up their flower stalks. When the flowers are finished blooming and the seeds are well-formed, cut the stalk at soil level. (Usually mid-July) Remove leaves and discard, hang the stalk to dry in a breezy location. Within 3-5 days, the seeds will be dry enough to remove and place in a paper bag. Use these seeds for your August and October sowing, saving enough for the following year.

For summer harvesting of spinach simply sow seeds on the north side of cover plants like tomatoes. This will help protect them from the summer sun.
