As far as vegetables go spinach is fairly easy to grow, but you will have to know how about to go about doing this before starting. Spinach grows best in cooler climates and it definitely does well in a very rich soil that will hold water well. Those who plan on growing spinach will need to add quite a bit of thoroughly-rotted compost material to the soil that they are growing this vegetable in.
Mulch around the spinach plants will also help to retain as much water as possible, so you will need to keep that in mind when you are going about growing these plants. Because spinach does not do well with full heat in the summer time, it will be important to plan them between rows of something else such as sweet corn or even peas.
