You will also need some basic gardening tools such as a trowel, hoe, rake, and watering can. These tools will be used for planting, maintaining, and harvesting your spinach.

In addition to these basic materials, there are a few other things that can be helpful to have on hand. Mulch can be used to help keep the soil moist and to suppress weeds. Row covers can be used to protect your spinach from pests and frost. Fertilizer can be used to give your spinach plants the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy.
