We planted spinach seeds a week ago. I noticed alot of small holes (pea size) after we planted by the rows. Our spinach came up but then seem to wilt and disapear. Any ideas what happened?

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.
