The spinach is a special crop that grows during fall. You can only buy its seeds at the Supermarket after you’ve shipped 100 of each of the other fall crops, excluding green peppers. The spinach is the least profitable crop to plant during fall, despite being a special crop that needs to be unlocked.
Days to Mature: 5 days
Renewable Crop: No
Where to buy Seeds: Supermarket (After shipping 100 eggplants, 100 carrots, and 100 sweet potatoes)
Maximum Harvests Per Season: 5 times, assuming you plant at least on the fifth day of the season.
Tip: Watering your crops once a day is very important! Seeds and crops stop growing if you don’t water it for a day. Renewable crops will also not regrow if you forget to water them.

Max Profit Formation (3×3) vs Optimized U-Shape Formation
The best way to plant crops is the U-Shape Formation. This method of planting crops ensures that no seed goes to waste since you can water and harvest them all. This is the optimal way of planting renewable crops.
The 3×3 formation is the best in terms of profit. You should only use the 3×3 square formation if you have an upgraded watering can, as you won’t be able to reach the crop at the center of the square without it. It’s also wise to use the 3×3 formation when planting non-renewable crops.
The crops you grow on your farm make excellent gifts to the townspeople. You can increase its effect on the townspeople’s affection by wrapping it in wrapping paper at the Supermarket before gifting it to them.
