It was the second generator, the first one didn't survive the winter and this year I am going solar.

No tricks, sorry. I can't grow spinach at all, my ground is far too acidic. I could do them in pots, I suppose - I might try that! I know they don't like being dry, or they bolt (start to flower) and they like lots of space between them, but other than that - sorry.
I'm desperate to go out and start gardening - our snowdrops are just coming up, but I know it's still too early!
As for garlic nomoregmo, I just shove it in the ground, and it grows! Sorry (again). I don't know of any special tips, but according to one of my favourite books 'plant each clove 6 inches apart, in Spring, with their tops 2 inches below ground level, in a sunny spot. Lift when the leaves start to yellow and dry the whole thing for a couple of weeks'.
That seems a bit precise, but worth a try. Good luck!

Oh yay! Good news about the tomatoes! Brilliant!
I can't believe they're starting to fruit already, that seems so early. Thank goodness they made it, though.
Spinach in pots (especially magic spinach) sounds like a plan - I'm definitely going to give that a go. All four of my children are looking at me in horror now - ha ha ha, no excuse not to eat your spinach now!
