    Gardening-Spinach Problems

    I have some spinach in a pot that is having all kinds of issues. It germinated really well, then about 3/4 of the plants died off shortly after germination. It has been outside, in some pretty harsh sun, but I have been watering it about every other day. I am contemplating moving it inside on a window sill, and re-seeding the pot.

    What do you think? Maybe I need to switch to some other variety of salad greens that likes the heat better. My apartment deck gets some pretty harsh full-on afternoon sun. Any suggestions on a type of salad green that would grow better with this weather.

    Was your pot drying out between waterings?

    Yeah it was, I started watering it about every 3 days or so, and made sure it was dry before I watered again. Now I increased to watering a little more often, but that doesn't seem to be helping either.

    Too hot this time of year for spinach. Lettuce would do okay.
