pinach is a cool-weather crop. Plant seeds directly into the garden, four to six weeks before the last spring frost. To get better and quicker germination, soak the seeds for several hours before planting. Spinach grows well in soil that is near neutral in pH – between 6.5 and 7.5.

Preserving And Storing Spinach America Seeds
get the spinach as dry as you can, you can simply pack it into freezer bags, remove the excess air and toss it in a freezer. I like to use our vacuum sealer when I freeze stuff, so we usually make bags out of that. But freezer bags will work as will any freezer safe container. Make sure you label what it is and the date so that you know when you look in the freezer. Blanched spinach will keep about a year in the freezer. If you skipped the blanching, it will keep roughly six months.
Popeye was the best thing that ever hit the spinach industry. When I was a kid you couldn’t pay me to eat lima beans or peas, but spinach? I begged for it; we all did.
