Did beautifully sown a little later in the season.

I was so eager to sow this giant winter spinach, that I planted a few in mid July (the packet said from July to December). Unfortunately most of these didn't germinate and those that did bolted before they could form any significant leaves. However..... I sowed some more in the third week of August and it's done beautifully. Just waiting a little longer has worked wonders and I can already see some very healthy looking leaves coming up, 100% germination of the 6 seeds I put in alongside one plank on the allotment. I plan to sow sucessively through the autumn as I think this spinach is going to be terrific and will provide us with some greens in the coldest days. I wonder how 'giant' it will become.....!?
