For the last 5-6 week my spinach hasnt grown. Have a look at the growth http://www.fishyplants.com/growth.html . Spinach is center back.

Could they be water logged? Should i lower stand pipe? Its 3cm below surface already.

i've never had any luck with spinach in ap either.
I think spinach is a little picky about light and temperature, both of which i've got a bad position for.

Roots look fine, yeah spinach is one of those things, sometimes works sometimes doesn't, a bit like corn.

And cucumbers - I grow more spinach than I can deal with, but haven't been able to produce a cucumber in 12 months :scratch:

I had some spinach seeds I threw in 8 or 10 weeks ago. They all germinated just before the freeze we had which killed off all but a few little plants. Since then, these have been growing like rockets. I had no idea spinach could get so big...leaves as big as your head. I think time of year has a lot to do with it. From what I can tell, it likes cool nights and nice warm days. In Texas, January (late winter) certainly seems to be a good planting time as long as it can be protected from the last freeze. I expect it will start getting a little too warm for it pretty soon.
