    I have had a similar problem with holes appearing after planting, and I assume something (possibly birds) is eating the seeds. The wilting of the spinach could be caused by something eating them from below, or by overly dry or waterlogged soil, or even by intense heat. Pull up a couple of wilting seedlings to check whether something has bitten into them or cut them off at the base.

    If your plants are flowering, they have bolted.

    It is best to harvest before they have gone to seed.

    The label clearly states not to use on food producing crops. You should not consume your vegetables after application of this product.

    You can compost the plants.

    Yes, if you wash it, it is safe to eat. If you want to be extra sure that it is safe, you can add a drop or two (but no more) of bleach to the water that you will be rinsing the spinach in and this will help fully sanitize any potential pathogens.
