Alright, now that the bed's ready we're going to take the stick. Now with spinach, it says on the back here, it's always good to read on the back of the labels because it gives you all the directions on the seed pack, and with these, they need to be a half inch to a quarter inch under the ground. So we're going to take the stick, press a little bit and create a little groove down in the soil. Bust up any chunks that happen to be there. We want our rows to be about four inches apart. You don't have to use any fancy tools here, just a stick. A longer stick would be nice so I don't have to reach so far. Ok, and if any weeds happen to show up, you'll want to get rid of them too. And, put these out in our hands. Now they do have little seed planting devices that you can pour these in so you can be more precise. I like to do it just with my hand. Plant them about two or three inches apart to give them plenty of space when they come up, so they don't compete with each other. Alright, we have our rows in. Looking good.
