I planted spinach seeds three times before I saw any sprouts. They need to be planted about 1/8th of an inch, and the first two tries were too deep. Last time, I just dropped them on the dirt and sprinkled a bit of dirt over them. Now there are sprouts. I just needed a bit more patience: keep doing the right things, and good will come of it in time.
So, below you can see patience rewarded (spinach sprouts). Also, the lantana just keeps blossoming, and I’ll eat part of the lettuce in today’s salad.
