>From the FEDCO Catalog:

Minimum germination temperature 35f, optimal range 45-65f,
optimal temperatures 55-60f, emergence takes 23 days at 41f,
12 days at 50f, only 5 days at 77f, however 91% normal seedlings at 50f, 
82% at 59f but only 52% at 68f and a mere 28% at 77f. Spinach seed will not 
germinate in soil temperarures above 85f.

Those air conditioners are looking better!

   Hence the extra effort we put into getting it up and going.
