Should I Bother Trying to Grow Spinach?
This is only my second season gardening so I'm still trying to learn the ropes. For fall I'm growing everything from seed. I've planted 8 types of veggies and all but 1 have germinated and sprouted, the bloomsdale spinach. It's still hot in California so I directly sowed them into the container I plan on growing them in indoors. 3 weeks later, nothing. I then tried the paper towel method. Again, nothing. Lastly, I tried the paper towel method in the refrigerator and the seeds remain dormant. Rather than continue to waste seeds, should I even bother trying to grow spinach in Los Angeles? Even in winter, there will still be warm or even hot days. It just doesn't get cold enough here. Anyone from a zone 9 have success with germinating and growing spinach seeds?
