Asked by Bozena on Tuesday, January 11
I live in Central Texas and i am fairly new gardener here. I am using a guide for planting vegetables and as recommended will start spinach next week.
My question is: after I transplant small spinach plants in to the garden, we still have some below 32F nights ahead, do I cover newly planted transplants or just leave them and they should be frost hardy?
Thanks for any help,

They should be just fine but if you're worried it's ok to cover them (or all of them but 1, just to check). My spinach does great until the snow falls (I'm in Connecticut) without protection.
