I have been growing Bloomsdale spinach for 15 years. It tolerates a wide variety of conditions. Doing very well in a hot summer and just as well in a cool greenhouse or as a winter crop, Bloomsdale is a very reliable variety for me. Lush, tender dark green leaves can be harvested very young or when mature. Plant several times throughout the summer to always have a new crop coming in. Easy to freeze for the winter. Dunk a bunch into boiling water for 30 seconds, strain out, pat dry with a towel, lay on cookie sheets and freeze until hard. Then put in freezer bags.
