    Nearly all the spinach is bolting, I've never had this problem before, could it be the up and down temp we are experiancing?

    It could well be ... I've always regarded spinach beet as a cool weather veg ... I sow in late summer/early autumn and use it through the autumn/winter/spring.  

    When did you sow yours?  Was it this spring or has it overwintered?
