I am from the middle east, new to this forum and found it very useful and read a lot of informative articles.
I did spinach planting from seeds, the first planting in my life. Most seeds germinated in a week. After 3-4 days, all of the seedlings(which are only almost 1" from the ground) were found "headless" as if some insects cut them. The plant itself is only 1" and the leaves were too small. nevertheless to say, none of the seedlings were survived more that two weeks.
I would like to hear the advice of the experts...
