Spinach: Week 2
image 1, image 2
Got some true leaves on the week two spinach plants. They’re all looking pretty good, but I feel like the stalks are awfully weak. I know this variety is supposed to grow upright to save space (hence the name, I assume) but all of the plants fall over at the slightest drop of water/wind/soil. I have most of them propped up with small pieces of bark sitting on top of the soil. Not sure if I should mound the dirt up around the bases?

Spinach: Week 3

Got a few sprouts coming up, but again not very evenly. They seem to grow fairly evenly once up, though.
