  Spinach, being a cool season crop, is not likely to be a success in the south in summer 

  even if it germinates when planted, which leaves a few alternatives:

  Make plantings at above 8000ft elevation where it is much cooler.

  Grow substitutes like chard, lambs quarter, leaf beet, or tetragonia.

  Put up a greenhouse and install enough air conditioners to keep soil and

  air at +- 50F.
