Now lets take some time briefly to talk about the weather conditions. We're here in middle Tennessee and we're planting the spinach in the early April and we're not worried about the frost too much because spinach is a hardy plant and can take some frost. And we also want to make sure when we're planting these seeds, that we can time it possibly around the rains that are coming because its always good to have these seeds wet for at least three to four to five days. Spinach takes at least five to six days to germinate. So therefore you need to make sure that the weather conditions are such because you don't want to be coming out here for four or five days always having to water because we want to do this in an easy and a simple way and therefore check the weather. Make sure you plan it just before the rain.
