My neighbor and I planted a garden and we had the following problems. Spinach seeds never produced - squash only produced 3 and had worms - Cauliflower and eggplant never produced. Was it just to cold of a winter?? we covered the garden to prevent any freeze.

I suspect the winter was just too cold for your garden to thrive. You can plant cool season veggies in August or in February and they will mature before warm weather arrives. Squash and eggplants are warm season crops and should be planted in March for harvest before June. I'd give the spinach and cauliflower another chance and replant them now. You can plant your squash and eggplants in March or April. Best wishes with your garden!
