I grow alot of baby spinach and find the earthway with the chard plate does
a much better job than the spinach plate. It does plant thick but thats
what im after. It seems to flow better than the spinach plate.

The Jang will do a good job for you. I never had good luck with consistent
singulation with the Earthway. If you have a greenhouse and are growing a
lot of spinach, I'd look into a paperpot transplanter. I've been using the
paperpot transplanter with spinach for three years now and figure that
between eliminating one cultivation and the fact that I can get one more
crop in per season it more profitable for me to transplant than to direct
